CONIFERS OF THE PNW: CHARACTERISTICS AND NATURAL HISTORY OF CONIFERS IN THE PINE FAMILY

May 18, 2024

FREE. Registration NOT required.

The Pacific Northwest (PNW) is one of the most diverse regions in the world for conifers.  Our climate has much in common with many of the other areas of the planet where conifers are more common than flowering trees, making the PNW an ideal place to include both native and non-native conifers in the home landscape.  This talk will focus on the pine family (Pinaceae).  We will walk the PCC Rock Creek campus examining the foliage, cone, bud, and bark characteristics that differentiate spruce, true fir, hemlock, Douglas-fir, larch, and true cedar.  A bit of natural history on each of these groups of conifers will also be discussed.
