"An important fact to appreciate is that precise identification is not always possible and sometimes is a matter of opinion based on weighing the relative importance of conflicting facts.... This responsibility rests with the botanist, and there are often honest differences of opinion on these matters." — George W.D. Symonds, The Tree Identification Book
