Pine trees are coniferous resinous, evergreen trees that have acicular-shaped leaves that resemble needles.
The needles usually occur in 2 to 8 fascicles. The sheath of the fascicle has either persistent or deciduous bud scales. The pine tree produces seed cones that mature within two years.
Seed cones, also known as pine cones, remain on the tree for more than ten years before dropping to the ground. Generally, pine cones fall during the autumn season and are commonly used for seasonal and holiday decorations.
Pine trees are beneficial and provide environmental benefits to the surrounding habitat. A variety of bird species benefit from pine trees by eating pine cone seeds to nourish their bodies and using pine needles that have fallen to the ground as a sanctuary from predators and harsh weather.
When pine needles fall to the ground, they often interlock, which protects the earth's surface and aids in preventing soil erosion, which helps maintain healthy soil for pine trees and other plants thrive.
Pine trees thrive in cool-temperatures and are dominant plants in boreal forests.
They are specifically successful in high altitude areas.
Research has revealed that pine trees are estimated to date back to 153 million years ago. The longest living species is the bristlecone pine that has been living for more than 4,700 years.
Today, about 250 species of pines are growing in various areas throughout the world. They are especially abundant in the Northern Hemisphere, where they easily thrive in weather conditions.
Pine trees form a family of conifers that are referred to as Pinaceae. It is part of the sub-class Pinidae, which includes 11 genera such as firs, pines, spruces, cedars, and more.
