PLEASE NOTE: Factors to be considered when rating a species are those under genetic control, and pertain to differences between species. Species ratings should reflect the merits of the species when properly located on appropriate favourable sites. Please exercise caution not to include factors which may be reflected in condition or location ratings. Base your ratings on knowledge of and experience with a representative cross-section and not on one of a few notable specimens that come quickly to mind. Use a similar scale of 1 to 5 for working knowledge of each species. 1= seldom; 2=occasional; 3=intermittent; 4=regular; 5=all the time.
