CONIFER CONE KEY
Some conifers can be recognised by their distinctive cones. For others the cone tells you what group of closely-related conifers the tree belongs to. For example, the cones of Pines look quite different from those of Cedars. For these conifers you can go to a deeper level of identification by clicking on a BUTTON, which is in the form of a name with a box round it e.g Pines, Spruces, Firs and Cypresses. Click on the names in red for a full description of a tree species. Click on any photo to enlarge it.
