when you walk among the trees The secrets of their beauty lies within
These beautiful majestic plants which cover the forest floor with their leaves hold some of the most profound secrets known to mankind. Learning what these giants can produce makes going into the woods not just an adventure, but a journey of self reflection as well. Here these quite giants in the heat of summer provide a cool place to escape the heat. In stormy days, a shield from extreme winds. In the winter months, wood to keep oneself warm. They provide clean air in which we breath. Medicine for when we are sick. Food for when we are hungry. And a home for when we need a place to live.
Trees are divided up into two groups angiosperms and gymnosperms of which of the gymnosperms trees are then further divided into two more subdivided groups monocotyledons and dicotyledons.
Gymnosperms: Are a group of woody, vascular plants with open naked seeds yet they do not produce flowers or fruit. Some of the seeds of gymnosperm plants are exposed on cones rather than enclosed in ovary or fruit. Gymnosperms are the largest, tallest and oldest organisms on found on the planet. There are 4 groups among the gymnosperms tree classification; conifers, gingko, gnetophyta, cycads. However, the largest and most diverse group are the conifers.
Angiosperms: Are plants whose seeds are enclosed in an ovary and are with flowers and fruit. Angiosperms can be defined as vascular plants which have seeds, fruit, and flowers for reproduction.
Monocotyledons: Are leaves which parallel leaf veins and flowers with three to six parts. Monocotyledon literally means ‘one embryonic leaf’ and refers to the single leaf that emerges from the soil.
Dicotyledons: Are flowering plants with an embryo that bears two cotyledons (seed leaves). Dicotyledons constitute the larger of the two great divisions of flowering plants, and typically have broad, stalked leaves with netlike veins of four, five or more than six blooming parts.
Trees are divided into two regions Western And Eastern
***We are currently working on making these regions and list of trees available in the near future so please keep a look out as when the list is completed a link will be directly connected to the regions listed below.***
