To most Tasmanians, this plant is commonly and affectionately known as the Fagus, rather than its more cumbersome name of Nothofagus gunii.
In autumn in Tasmania, (around about late April, near Anzac Day), the Fagus turns colour from a bright green to a variety of golds and even crimsons. It is at this time of year that many Tasmanians of all ages take to the high country, to marvel at and enjoy the beauty of the fagus reflected in the icy water of mountain tarns.
