The Conifers

UK Garden Centre - An overview of Conifer trees

42

Family Pinaceae

The British flora is singularly poor in coniferous plants, the Scots Pine, the Juniper, and the Yew being our only native species.
The principal feature distinguishing all Conifers and their allies (Gymnosperms) from other flowering-plants (Angiosperms) is briefly this: Angiosperms have their incipient seeds (ovules) enclosed in a carpel, through which a shoot from the pollen grain has to penetrate in order to reach and fertilize the ovule. In Gymnosperms the carpel takes the form of a leaf or bract, upon which the naked ovule lies open to actual contact with the pollen grain. After fertilization the carpel enlarges to protect the seed, and becomes fleshy or woody, in the latter case a group of carpels forming the well-known cones of Pine or Fir.
In some of the groups the male or pollen-producing flowers are borne by a separate tree from that which bears the female or cone-producing flowers. In the Pines both sexes are found on the same tree; and in all Conifers the pollen is carried by the wind. They are among the most valuable of timber trees, and, in addition, yield a number of useful substances, such as pitch, tar, turpentine, etc.
The linear leaves are always rigid, extremely narrow, and long in proportion, with the two sides parallel. In the Pines they are in clusters of two, three, or five, seeming to be bound together at the base by a wisp of thin skin. The number of leaves in each bundle is often a help in distinguishing species.
