Often thought as a permanent gesture of romantic love, people have historically carved their names on trees, as seen on this American Beech (Fagus grandifolia).

You see a LOT of that on the hike to "Sand cave" where Floyd Collins died. People don't seem to realize your tree carvings won't last much longer than you!
