“A tree is a big plant with a stick up the middle- and a big plant with a stick up the middle is not an easy thing to be. Darwin spoke of evolution as ‘descent with modification’ and it took a lot of descending- several billion generations- and a great deal of modification to get from the world’s first life, to the world’s first plant, to the creatures we recognize as oaks and monkey puzzles and eucalypts. In truth we can never know for sure how many species of tree there are. However much you know, you can never be sure that nothing has escaped you. With trees, there are many good reason to think that a great deal has escaped us. Every so often some highly conspicuous tree turns up which either has never been seen before, or is known only from fossils, and has long been presumed extinct. Identification is the beginning of all natural history. Nature appears to us as the grandest conceivable theatre, endlessly unfolding. Identification can be difficult for all kinds of reasons- even of trees, which are so big and conspicuous, and which do not run away.”
