Trees in snowy areas are conical in shape to prevent overwhelming amounts of snow from piling up on the branches and foliage. A large bushy tree would college huge amounts of snow on the top, easily breaking the branches and eventually killing the tree. The conical shape, with branches growing perpendicularly out of a vertical trunk allows the branches to bend slightly downward due to the extra weight of the snow without breaking, minimizing the amount of snow that may pile up on the branches.
most of them are conical because conical trees can live and easily reproduce in boreal climates... it's hard to pollinate for ordinary trees
The cone shape of pine trees is a structural adaptation. As a result, the branches do not break under the weight of snow.
There are many species of evergreen trees that are not conical. It's mainly the "pinus species" that are conical
Almost all tree have a conical shape. It doesn't matter where they live. The leaves at the top would shade the leaves below if that branch wasn't longer to put their leaves in the sun. The next branches do the same.
This configuration maximizes the light energy available to each pine tree.
Snowy owls do not live in trees, Snowy owls are 'clumsy' owls that find it almost impossible to negotiate trees, due to the environment they are born in not having any trees.
It is basically found only at the foothills of the Himalayas, where the trees reach a height of 1500 to 2500 meters! The trees are mostly conical in shape and hence they are called coniferous trees. The important trees of this region are Pine, Deodar and Chir.
a snowy owls habitat is full of snow and trees (usually snowy place)
No. The high altitudes of the Snowy Mountains do not support the type of eucalyptus trees, or the density of these trees, which koalas require.
it nests on the ground with no trees in the artic
Many of the trees are adapted to withstand large and heavy snowfalls and most conifers are conicalshaped trees that shed snow easily without breaking limbs or some of them also have very thick bark to protect them from fire.
cutting down trees plus other predators that might roam the forests with the snowy owls!
