The 'bird-cherry' no doubt belongs to the first period and therefore was known to the Finns before they left Asia.

The Zịrians have borrowed their word from the Russian and the Vtk. tịpị-pu seems to have the same origin. The northern limit of the maple, which does not grow east of the Urals, and of wheat, is nearly the same as that of the oak. The 'ash,' which appears to be only known to the West Finns, covers a much more restricted area than the oak.
