Vernacular Names

— In a general way the name Pine is given to that group of plants known to botanists as Conifers. The exceptions are rare, but a few brush trees in Australia go by that name. Cur tree is known as "Pine," "She Pine," and "Brown Pine," and, to a less extent, "White Pine," but the last designation had better be left for Araucaria Cunninghamii, the "Hoop Pine." Called also "Plum Pine" and "Berry Pine," in allusion to the fruits; and also "Brush Pine," because of the situation in which it grows. It is also known as "Native Deal."
