A lot of Fallen's types have type locality: Sweden, Esperod
Could somebody gives coordinates or modern name of "Esperod"?

Thank you, Kurt!
One more question:
Esperöd is a settlement of several houses or oak forest around?

Hi Nikita !

Esperöd is the name of the mansion, where Fallen lived/spent a lot of time.
You can see a photo at: http://esperodsherrgard.se

Google earth coordinates: 55 40'43.20'' N , 14 14'24.70'' E

There is actually a photo of a big oak close to the mansion at Google earth, but I dont think there is any oak forest.

Fallen died in 1830 and the arborete was created in 1922.

Esperöd is also a "Nature reserve" with this homepage in Swedish Grin

After some more research found this:

There are also plenty of oak, both with big crowns, reminiscent of days when the landscape was characterized by grazing (Fallen's time ?) , and smaller windswept oaks, that grow on the east side, close to the sea.

Hopefully this answers your "oak-question".
