Not such a shame Edmund - surely we don't want more exotic monocultures
of dubious value to biodiversity?

Oh dear, and I thought fluting was genetic rather than adaptive,
probably because the Birch (tree breeding) improvement programme that
was running over here for a while, was trying to minimise it by

Fluting, big taper, buttressing, all undesirable traits if growing for
timber. Shame the Monkey puzzle doesn't produce the timber quality here
in the UK that it apparently does at home.

  SC  Seems to me USDA FS published a paper on fluting in Alaskan
hemlocks as a wind response.  I think we need to distinguish the
important understanding of how morphology of any sort arises from how
morphologies or chnages in them relate to risk of failure.
