what are the types of softwood?
I don't know what all the softwood trees are, but I do know some. They include:
The rain forest has hardwood and softwood trees. Softwood trees grow all over the world. Pine is a good example of softwood.
Softwood is from coniferous trees, which are types of gymnosperm trees. Other names for softwood is balsam, tamarack, pine, fir, or spruce.
Softwood. All the evergreen trees give softwood.
Softwood trees are conifers, trees with needles. Spruce and Pine would be 2 softwood trees.
Softwood is just normal wood from a tree, but it's only wood from certain types of trees. All the pine and fir trees are softwood trees (conifers) and the leafy trees like oaks and maples (deciduous) are hardwood trees. The difference is literally that conifers produce a softer, more easily dented wood than deciduous.

Pine trees are coniferous trees and considered to be softwood. Softwood trees typically have needles and cones and are gymnosperm trees that include conifers. Hardwood is from angiosperm trees.
Deciduous trees lose their leaves in the autumn. Not softwood trees. Almost every conifer is softwood and they never lose all their needles. Well at least if they are living.
Supposedly , hardwood trees have leaves and softwood doesn't
Needle-leaf trees produce softwood.
By definition, all dicotyledon trees are hardwood trees. All polycotyledon trees are softwood trees. Cherry trees are dicotyledons. Long leaf pines have much harder wood than most hardwood trees. "Dade County Pine," a type of Slash Pine, is too hard to nail. Termites can not bite into it. It is still called softwood.
A good rule of thumb for softwood/hardwood difference is that hard woods come from trees which bear seeds with a covering, such as oak trees, which produce acorns... An example of a softwood would be pine, which produse pinecones, an arrangement of seeds with no real covering.
Softwood is deciduous. Hardwood is coniferous. :)
