What is the reproductive organ of pine trees?

The flowering candles at the ends of the branches where next years growth will split into different directions. the male flower releases its pollen into the wind which may stick to the the female flower parts. A fertilized female pine tree flower will become a pinecone with many seeds between the scale-like parts that we most often see opened up.

Pine Trees

Is the pine tree a flowering plant?

No, pine trees are not flowering plants.

There are actually two types of seed bearing plants. There are gymnosperms, where the seeds develop on a surface, such as a pine cone. Gymnosperms do not flower. Then there are angiosperms, where the seeds develop within an ovary. Angiosperms are what we commonly call flowering plants.

Pine trees are gymnosperms, so they only produce cones and never flowers. The cones work as the male and female parts of the tree. The long tubular parts are the male cones, and they are covered in pollen. The larger brown pine cone that we are used to seeing have seeds under each little prong of the cone. They are the female cone.

Is there a Pine Tree Vermont or a Columbia Inn as in the movie White Christmas?

Sadly, there is no Pine Tree, Vermont. However, there really was a "snow train" that travelled from New York City to Vermont. In the early days of skiing, a primary destination was Manchester Depot, Vermont. Skiers headed to the nearby ski areas Snow Valley and Bromley. Although there was no Columbia Inn in Manchester, there was a small picturesque inn that was used by skiers arriving on the snow train. It was known as the Worthy Inn, and was a part of the Snow Valley ski area.

Is fir trees the same as pine trees?

No, but they are both known as coniferous trees, which means they are cone bearing. They do have many similarities so they can be easily confused if you are not very familiar with dendrology (the study of trees).

Are pine trees more or less likely struck by lightning?

A journal paper was published under the title of "Lightning protection for trees and related property" (R. Cripe, Journal of Arboriculture; Sept.24 2007) that notes Pine Trees are third most likely to be struck by lightning; after oak and elm. Pine trees are noted as being on average taller than other trees, having a direct water-table root system and their needles have a lower resistance (higher conductivity).

Why is a pine tree considered to be more similar to the hibiscus plant than to a fern?

Gymnosperms, such as pine trees, and angiosperms, such as hibiscus, both sport an important evolutionary feature that ferns do not. Gymnosperms and angiosperms both make seeds through sexual reproduction, while ferns produce spores through a type of asexual reproduction. (the latin word sperma means seed.)

Pine Trees

Why do pine trees grow faster in summer than in winter?

Biochemistry, light, temperature and water describe why pine trees grow faster in summer than in winter. Reduced daylight, moisture, nutrients and temperature slow sunlit interactions down so that fewer sugars are made for such life-sustaining activities as photosynthesis and respiration in winter. Summer supports growth because of the abundant moisture, high-angled sun and warm temperatures activating enzymes while winter tends to be a time for pine trees to break down and remake proteins, maintain cell membranes and recycle magnesium, nitrogen and phosphates.
