Pine Tree:

Pine trees are evergreen, coniferous resinous trees grown across the southern United States, thriving in the red clay soil of the South. Known as one of the strongest and most versatile species of wood, it is the ideal choice for builders and carpentry. Most pines have thick and scaly bark. A lot of branches arise from the same, spirally arranged points on the tree. Pines have leaves shaped like needles that remain on the trees throughout the whole year (evergreen plants). A conifer is a type of tree that produces cones and evergreen needles. Spot a pile of cones beneath a tree and you’ve found yourself a conifer. With the word cone embedded in it, it’s no surprise that conifer is the term used for cone-producing trees.

Cedar Tree:

A cedar is an evergreen tree with a particularly fragrant wood. There are many types of cedar trees. All cedars are large coniferous evergreen trees. Because of their size, these trees are not often found in gardens and are usually seen lining streets or in parks. However, they make an excellent windbreak and are suitable on large pieces of property to add a living hedge or winter interest. They grow fast and can be found in a wide range of climate zones.

Spruce Tree:

Spruce trees are robust evergreen trees that grow in cooler climates and are often used as Christmas trees during the holiday season. There are about 40 species of spruce trees worldwide, with several including the Colorado Spruce and the Norway spruce being the most common. Like pines and firs, spruce trees have needles rather than leaves, which often makes it difficult to distinguish between these three types of tree. When you are identifying a tree, first make sure it’s a spruce rather than a pine or fir. Then carefully examine the needles, bark and cones to determine the species of spruce tree.
