plān´trē ( ערמון , ‛armōn ; πλάτανος , plátanos ( Genesis 30:37 ), ἐλάτη , elátē ("pine" or "fir") (Ezekiel 31:8 ); the King James Version chestnut): ‛Armōn is supposed to be derived from the root ערם , ‛āram , meaning "to be bare" or "naked"; this is considered a suitable term for the plane, which sheds its bark annually. The chestnut of the King James Version is not an indigenous tree, but the plane (Planus orientalis ) is one of the finest trees in Palestine, flourishing especially by water courses (compare Ecclesiasticus 24:14).
