Pinaceae Family

The Pinaceae Family is one of the largest families of Conifers (Pinophyta division of the Plant Kingdom). The family includes cedars, firs, hemlocks, larches, pines and spruces. The majority of plants in this kingdom are evergreen and grow into full fledged trees (there are a few species that dwarf out as shrubs).


Context: Flowers

Trees (25 pictures) The majority of the members of the Pinaceae family grow into trees.

mountains (0 pictures) Pines tend to grow on the shaded side of the Mountain (Northfacing slopes in the Northern Hemisphere). Evergreens do not take well to the freezing and thawing cycles of south facing slopes.
