Previous Index Next

The genus Pinus (pines) is characterized by its long shouts only covered with scale leaves, whereas the short shouts have some scarious scale leaves and in most cases 2-5 perennial needles. In total it consists of about 110 species on the whole northern hemisphere. Perhaps the pines of all trees cover the largest area on earth.
