A tree or shrub bearing cones; one of the order Coniferae, which includes the pine, cypress, and (according to some) the yew.
Trees that bear cones. Include most commercial California lumber species: pine, fir, cedar, redwood, hemlock, Douglas fir, spruce. Also called softwoods and evergreens.
See coniferous trees.
Type of tree with thin, shiny needle-like leaves. Most are cone-bearing but exceptions include yew and juniper.
A non-deciduous tree, usually (but not always) with needles which are not lost during fall. Conifers are so named because they are all cone-bearing - they all use a structure called a cone to store and ditribute seeds. Conifers (including common trees like spruce, pine, and fir) are excellent shelter for a wide variety of birds, and are an essential part of any backyard habitat.
A tree that keeps its leaves all year round, the leaves are predominately and inch or so in leangth and thin, a pine or spruce for example.
is a cone-bearing plant.
Conifer is an arboricultural term meaning, literally, a cone-bearer. Trees that are conifers reproduce by forming a cone rather than a flower as a container for their seeds.
a plant that bears its seeds in cones
Cone-bearing tree; softwood.
conifère(n) trees that reproduce by means of cones; generally evergreen, with slender prickly leaves (needles) or leaves with rounded points.
A tree which has needles rather than broad leaves and which typically bears cones, e.g.. yew, pine, fir or spruce. Most conifers in Britain are not native, but have been introduced for commercial forestry. Conifers native to Scotland are scots pine [ caledonian pine], juniper and yew.
those trees that reproduce through the production of cones Deciduous – falls off seasonally, usually in autumn or dry seasons
any tree that produces seeds in cones. See softwood.
con-if-er Plant with needle-shaped leaves. Reproduces using seeds found in cones.
any gymnospermous tree or shrub bearing cones
a tree or shrub that bears its seeds in cones
a type of tree or shrub characterised by needle-like leaves and bearing reproductive structures called cones
a type of tree or the characterized shrub to lodge reproductive structures called cones
Woody trees and shrubs that produce cones. Common conifers include pines, firs, spruce, juniper, redwood and hemlocks.
The largest and most widely distributed order of gymnosperms, containing about 49 genera with approximately 570 species most of which are evergreen trees. Conifers are particularly abundant in the high latitudes of the northern hemisphere where they form the climax vegetation. Typically, conifers show a pyramidal growth pattern and bear simple leaves, often needles or scales. Conifers are also commercially important as a source of timber for the papermaking, building, and furniture industries. They are generally faster growing and develop a less dense wood than other trees. They are also known as softwood trees or Coniferales.
A woody tree or shrub, primarily evergreen, that produces cones.
Evergreen trees that have narrow needles (pines, firs) or scales (juniper) rather than leaves; seeds are produced in cones.
Tree or shrub (Order Coniferales) that is mostly evergreen and bears cones (deciduous larches and non-cone bearing yews are exceptions).
Any order of mostly evergreen trees and shrubs, including those with true cones such as pine, spruce and fir.
A tree that has cones containing the seeds from which the next generation of trees will grow. Examples include pines, spruces and firs.
evergreen trees that usually have cones
trees that bear seeds in cones and have long needle-like leaves
includes a wide range of trees, mostly evergreens that bear cones and have needle-shaped or scale-like leaves.
commonly called softwoods or evergreens. Although there are exceptions, most coniferous trees have cones and keep their needles through the winter.
Cone bearing trees; the "evergreens"
A tree that bears cones; mainly evergreen trees such as: pines, cedars, spruces and junipers. Coniferous trees have small and waxy leaves, sometimes needles, which are usually kept all year.
Cone-bearing trees having needles or scale-like leaves, usually evergreen, and producing wood known commercially as "softwoods."
a more precise term for some of the plants many people simply call evergreens
a plant commonly having needlelike, persistent leaves and a woody cone for a fruit. Coniferous branch
The largest monophyletic group of non-flowering seed plants. Conifers are generally evergreen trees with needle-like leaves, and bear their fertile parts (microsporangia and megasporangia) in unisexual strobili, or cones. The ovules are born naked on the upper surface of the scales of the female cone, so conifers are traditionally included in the artificial grouping "gymnosperms." | "Gymnosperm" section of Lab 10 | Conifer Section of Lab 10 | Lab 13 - Reproduction in Seed Plants
Plant that bears seeds in a cone.
A tree which has needles rather than broad leaves and which typically bears cones eg. yew, pine, fir, spruce. Most conifers in Britain are not native, but have been introduced for commercial forestry. Coppice Trees which are cut back to near ground level every few years and which grow again from the stump or stool. The many straight stems which grow from each stool are used for firewood, tools and other purposes. The word is also used as a verb, meaning "to cut coppice trees".
Cone bearing tree or the pine family, usually evergreen.
Any of an order of mostly evergreen trees and shrubs, including those with true cones, such as pines, and with arillate fruit, such as yews.
A small-leafed, cone-bearing ornamental plant. Usually evergreen.
A cone-bearing plant; usually evergreen but the larch is deciduous.
A plant that bears cones or similar seed cases. Most are evergreen and have needle-like foliage.
a cone-bearing tree.
A tree belonging to the order Coniferales of the botanical group, Gymnospermae, bearing cones and generally needle-shaped or scale-like leaves usually evergreen and producing timber often known as "softwood". ( BCFT modif.). Cf. Broad-leaved tree. Also see Hardwood; Softwoods.
Tree that is a gymnosperm, usually evergreen, with cones and needle-shaped or scalelike leaves, producing wood known commercially as softwood.
A deciduous or evergreen tree bearing cones rather than true flowers. Examples: Pine, Spruce, Larch, Fir. Foliage is needle-like.
an evergreen that produces seeds in special structures called cones
a plant belonging to a group of seed-bearing trees and shrubs, which have needle or scale-like leaves and resinous sap. Fertile parts of the plant are cones. The group first appeared in the Carboniferous.
Any of various predominately evergreen, cone-bearing trees and shrubs such as a pine, spruce, hemlock, fir, and juniper or yew.
Plants whose seeds are stored in cones and that retain their leaves all year around.
Trees with needles and cones
A tree that bears cones containing seeds.(most conifers are evergreens)
Any of various mostly needle-leaved or scale-leaved, chiefly evergreen, cone-bearing gymnospermous trees or shrubs such as pines, spruces, and firs. Popular bonsai subjects such as Juniper, Japanese Black Pine, and Cedar are confiers.
Cone-bearing, evergreen tree with needle-like, linear, or scale-like leaves. Found in temperate climate zones and is the most common tree in colder regions.
A class of trees that are evergreen, have needle or scalelike foliage and conelike fruit; often called softwood. Examples include pine, hemlock, cedar and cypress.
A plant that has cones, rather than fruits, as its method of dispersing seeds. Most conifers are needle-foliaged (evergreens such as the Spruces and Pines, or deciduous versions such as Larch) that have relatively large cones that spread open at maturity. However, others have a miniature berry-like cone (such as the Junipers) or a ball-like cone (such as Baldcypress, a deciduous conifer) instead.
A tree belonging to the order Gymnospermae, comprising a wide range of trees that are mostly evergrees. Conifers bear cones (hence, confierous) and needle-shaped or scalelike leaves. ( FEMAT, IX-7)
Cone bearing tree of the pine family, usually evergreen.
A "conifer" can also be called an " evergreen" or " softwood" tree. However, it is inaccurate to call all conifers "pines"! There are only three native pine tree species in the U.P. (white, red & jack) and seven species of non-pine conifers (balsam fir, hemlock, cedar, black & spruce, tamarack, and yew). True pines (genus Pinus) make up only 15% of the number of conifers in the U.P. [To return to previous page, click your browser's BACK button then scroll through the page to your last location
