Well, Conifers gave the answere. I did not much research to verify the species, it just looked exactly like some Cupressus nootkatensis at Rhederoord in Holland.

Regards, Jeroen

Yes, that's a definite Nootka Cypress.

This species was in the past often classified as Chamaecyparis nootkatensis and also by some as Xanthocyparis nootkatensis, but recent genetic research has shown it is best included in the genus Cupressus, as Cupressus nootkatensis (which is interestingly, what it was also first described as, by David Don in 1824).

The overview map of the park shows at location J-4 the No. 17, which is Chamaecyparis. Xanthocyparis nootkatensis is not listed on the plan. On the tree itself I have not seen any plate. Jeroen, how safe were you in determining? Please, can anyone else verify the species?

Der Übersichtsplan vom Park zeigt an der Stelle J-4 die Nr. 17, das ist Chamaecyparis. Xanthocyparis nootkatensis ist gar nicht gelistet auf dem Plan. Am Baum selbst habe ich kein Schild gesehen. Jeroen, wie sicher warst du dir bei der Bestimmung? Kann bitte noch jemand die Baumart überprüfen?

Grüße, Karlheinz
