Down at the confluence the wind was whistling through the branches of the casuarinas and I mentioned the possible etymology of she-oak as referring to that sound and opined it might be the world’s only onomatopoeic tree. “What about Crack Willow?” came the answer!
Can anyone think of any other onomatopoeic trees?
