Adhuc de arboribus Septentrionis.


CAP. V.

Quercus.                                         QVERCVS incorrupta sub aquis durat, & ob id vtilissima
                                        navium costis. Corticibus vero eius coria præparantur,
                                        & perficiuntur, vti infra de glacialibus stucturis ostendetur.
                                        Sunt & aliæ arbores durioris naturæ, e quibus detornantur
Resina prohibet putrefactionem.                                         annuli pro vsu antennarum, ac vtres, & amphoræ, resina,
                                        ne intus putrescant, liniendæ. Præterea aliæ ignoto nomine
Qualitates arborum.                                         sponte nascentes: quæ tamen ob effectum in pondere, colore,
                                        duritia, rotunditate, proceritate, & fructibus vtiles
                                        æstimantur. Cotoneæ autem, & sambuci cum rujubis dulcissimis
Salices duplices. ibidem reperiuntur. Itidem & salices duplici genere annotatæ: quibus ad
premendam famem lepores vtuntur. Et hæ licet steriles sint, densissima tamen sobole
Arbores renascuntur. excisis ramis, & plantatis renascuntur, vt reliquæ lignorum cæduæ sylvæ germinantes,
rursus a radice succisæ. Multæ etiam arbores inveniuntur, quæ quia altas,
multalque radices habent inextricabiles, nisi turbine, vel fulmine tangantur, continue
perseverant: quarum facilis ratio non datur, dum aliæ, alibique nascantur.
Hedera adulatrix. Hedera præterea veluti adulatrix adeo communis est, & onerosa, vt nivium sornento
paulatim muros & mœnia, nisi extirpetur, absumat.

De diversitate arborum.

CAP. VI.

Arborum diversitas.                                         SVNT præterea multiplicis generis abores in eisdem frigidis
                                        locis, & hæ præcipue, præter superius dictas, vt
                                        populeæ, fraxineæ, & altarum juniperorum, quæ ob proceritatem
                                        commode, propter annexum odorem quasi cypressinum,
Aedes odoriferæ.                                         aptantur ad electas mansiones, & ignea fomenta,
                                        tam tempore pestis, quam alio quotidiano vsu.
Perpetuitas stirpis.                                         Sponte enim hujusmodi arbores genitæ, perpetuitate stirpis
                                        indefinenter accrescunt, & inextirpabiles coalescunt,
Sepes arboreæ,                                         ita vt productæ ad robustam ætatem ( vt iam dictum erat ) sublimibus, & imis structuris,
