George and the metasequoia (the dawn redwood)🌿 first described as a fossil of the Mesozoic Era, this tree was thought to be extinct until the 1940s when a few found in China #boyswithplants #savestoneleigh #metasequoia #deciduousconifer #mesozoic #naturallandstrust
The tamarack is easily my favourite conifer in this region. Being a decidious coniferous tree, how could I not love it? Those soft needles, their vibrant yellow colour in the fall, the way they line the ground once fallen, the cone formation... Always a gem. 🌲🌲🌲 #LarixLaricina #Tamarack #DeciduousConifer #Arboriculture #Tree #Love #Spring #Colour #June #CapeBreton #GoForAWalk

The #baldcypress are creating the #female #cones for their reproductive cycle. Seeing these is a first for me. I also learned that bald cypress are #monoecious which means they produce both male flowers (not pictured) and female cones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #naturephotography #naturecenter #takeawalk #naturewalk #gooutside #experientiallearning #virtualnaturewalk #plantreproduction #deciduousconifer

The very first plant we bought for the house was this baby #dawnredwood #metasequoia and he looked sickly, like he wouldn't last through the winter; alas, he lives and is growing beautifully. And Kensington is excited for school break. #conifer #deciduousconifer #metasequoiaglyptostroboides #sunshineligustrum #tigertail
Bald Cypress. Taxodium distichum. Cupressaceae. The rare and unique deciduous conifer! They have knees! They grow in swamps, bayous, rivers, and lakes! They can reach upwards of 2000 years old and 150 ft tall! They found an underwater stand of cypress in alabama that is MORE than 50,000 years old! The cones look like weird, amazing puzzles! I love them. So amazing. Why can't people be as good as trees?

The other day I discovered a few Dawn Redwood trees at the entrance to a favorite local park!🌿🌲🌿 They’re deciduous conifers, so their new leaves are just coming out. + + + I wonder if these particular trees were planted as landscaping? Or did they escape from the arboretum, or hop the fence of a neighborhood yard? This species is one of the three surviving types of redwoods (giant sequoias and coast redwoods being the other two). Dawn Redwoods were thought to have been extinct for millions of years, but in the 1940s, a living stand of them was discovered in a valley in China. Now, their seeds have been distributed all over the world. It’s leaves feel so fresh and new but the tree looks positively ancient🌿 + + + + #livingfossil #dawnredwood #metasequoia #deciduousconifer #newgrowth #pdx #springleaves

You know those days you spend walking through the forest and spring is everywhere and you’re surrounded by flowers and you hardly take any pictures and then you wish you could show everyone how gorgeous it was? This was one of those days. 💚 #larch #deciduousconifer #springinthemountains #exploregon #cascades #eastsidesunshine #hiking #foraging #ilovelarches #nativeplantsoforegon
Bald cypress join a unique group of trees that are deciduous conifers. They are cone-bearing but will change color and lose their needles each year. #cypress #baldcypress #cypresscone #deciduousconifer #theyarenotdead #justlosetheirneedles #bigcypress #florida
It’s a girl!🤗💝🌏 In honor of Earth Day, I want to celebrate a living fossil - the Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba).⠀ ⠀ Instead of cones, the female trees develop naked ovules (yellow-green ‘buds’ on long green stalks in pic) tucked in among the new leaves. These will develop into the dreaded stinky, messy fruits in fall that are the bane of pedestrians. Unless you plan to grow these as trees on a large lawn or commercially for food or medicinal use, please select and plant only named male cultivars.⠀ ⠀ Ginkgo trees are a great choice for urban areas since they are tolerant of air pollution, soil compaction, and poor soils. They are also resistant to disease/insect pests, and snow/wind storms rarely bother them. An added benefit is that they tend to drop all their leaves quickly - overnight if there is a sudden cold snap - making fall cleanup of the bright yellow leaves easy.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #ginkgobiloba #ginkgo #maidenhairtree #gymnosperm #ginkgoaceae #dcgardens #treesofdc #earthday #dioecious #gametophyte #sustainablegardendesign #urbantrees #deciduousconifer #conifer #earthday2018
New shoots on the unusual and beautiful deciduous conifer Taxodium distichum. The Bald Cypress. #baldcypress #deciduousconifer #springtrees #cazrenshawdesigns
Larch is not your average evergreen tree. As a deciduous conifer, its needles turn a beautiful golden colour before falling in autumn 🍂. You can find these trees in the northern latitudes and mountainous regions like Kananaskis Country in Alberta 🇨🇦 #treefacts #trees #deciduous #coniferous #deciduousconifer #tamarack #larch #kananaskis #alberta #golden #autumn 🍁

Spring flora alert! The bald cypress at work is budding again, and the scent is woodsy perfection #baldcypress #deciduousconifer
Larch cone 🌲 • • • • • • • • • Larix decidua seeds are important food for finches, siskin and redpolls. The cones are larger than the native larch to Ontario, Larix laricina, and prefer drier soils that are not waterlogged. #larix #larixdecidua #europeanlarch #larch #cones #pinecones #pinaceae #pinales #plantae #forest #seeds #conifer #deciduousconifer #plants #trees #plantecology #tiny #tinyplants #tinybotany #botany #hiking #woodland #rural #ontario
It's not dead, it's a deciduous conifer! The Tamarack tree grows and drops its leaves annually because the energy spent on leaf production is still less than if it were to keep its leaves alive through the winter like other coniferous species. If cones and buds are present, it's alive. Now how cool is that? . . . #deciduousconifer #conifer #tamarack #larch #treesofinstagram #churchill #findtruenorth @frontiersnorth #exploreMB #exploreoutdoors

Normally, you don’t think of conifers as deciduous trees, but this week’s #treeoftheweek is a Taxodium distichum, or Bald Cypress- a deciduous conifer! Like it’s deciduous friends, Bald Cypress needles change color and shed in the fall, hence the “bald” in the name. In late spring, lush green needles will emerge. Bald Cypress trees grow naturally in southeastern states, but thrives here too in our seasonally flooded and dry landscapes. Bald Cypress does extremely well in tough urban areas, making this an ideal and durable street tree. This tree can grow very large, but Corvallis Urban Forestry has selected a smaller relative, Taxodium ascends, or Greenfeather Pond Cypress to plant in medium to large planting strips. To learn more, or to see if your right of way is a good candidate for a Taxodium, contact the Corvallis Urban Forestry Program! #repost For more from our Urban Forestry department follow @corvallis_urban_forestry . . . . #taxodium #taxodiumdistichum #deciduousconifer #yaytrees #treesofinstagram #treestagram #corvallis #streettrees #oregon #corvallisoregon #pacific #pacificnorthwest #pnw #pnwonderland #tree #trees #forest #view #nature #oregonexplored #naturephotography #education #outreach #photography #naturephotogtraphy #naturelovers

Hackmatack tree covered in ice this morning, as the sunrises in the woods behind. Hackmatack is Abenaki for “wood used for snowshoes.” Another fun fact, it’s a deciduous conifer. Also called a #tamarack or #easternLarch ... #deciduousconifer #hackmatack #treesofinstagram #maine
Four Dawn Redwoods on the north side of the Lagoon Trail covered footbridge in Farmington, Utah. The Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides) is a wonderful plant with a fascinating history. It IS a true Redwood, but unlike most other conifers, the Dawn Redwood is deciduous, shedding its soft, fernlike needles in the fall. These specimens will probably leaf out again in a few weeks, judging by the buds. These trees once covered North America and Eurasia from 100 million years ago and onward, but vanished several million years ago. It was originally discovered as a fossil and though to be extinct until scientists found a relict population in China in the 1940’s. It is a fast-growing species, adding 2-4 feet per year. Old growth specimens in China are 100-165 feet tall and 7 feet wide, but the biggest were cut down centuries ago before they were studied. The true potential could be over 200 feet. This species is rarely planted in Utah, but does well when it has lots of water. It’s great for riparian zones and ponds. Unlike Giant Sequoias, they do not need well-drained soil and can even grow in standing water. I hope more are planted soon!

Edit: actually, I need to check this, maybe it's a Dawn redwood? Another find from yesterday's exploration of the UAlbany campus, a row of bald cypress trees (Taxodium distichum). This is one of relatively few deciduous conifers that grow around here, another is the golden larch (Pseudolarix amabilis), a row of which is planted just up the road from these bald cypress. #taxodium #taxodiumdistichum #baldcypress #conifer #deciduous #deciduousconifer #ualbany
Lookout! . from buildings.fortmissoulamuseum.org: Sliderock Lookout 1930 - Manufactured in Columbia Falls in 1930, pre-packaged lookouts, similar to this lookout, were shipped throughout a four-state region for assembly on a tower or bare ground. This lookout was dismantled at its site 40 miles southeast of Missoula, atop Sliderock Mountain, and moved to the Museum in 1983 with the assistance from the Friends of the Historical Museum and the Missoula Chapter of the Society of American Foresters. . . . . . . . #firelookout #historic #forestservice #museum #twighlight #missoula #gray #rain #winter #deciduousconifer #montanahistory #mthist
РУС 🇷🇺👇Bald cypress is also called "swamp", as it is native to swampy and wet areas of the south east US. The mature cypresses have an interesting peculiarity that really facinates me: their aerial roots, or "knees" that sometimes are found at a distance of several meters from the tree. There are 2 main theories explaining what they are for: to obtain oxigen from the air during the times of high water level, or to provide additional support for trees that grow in moist, unstable soils near water 🌲 Anyway, both of the theories haven't been completely proved yet🤔 У болотных кипарисов есть одна интересная особенность: взрослые деревья дают отростки боковых корней, растущие вертикально вверх и возвышающиеся над водой или почвой. Зрелище удивительное, тем более, что такие корни могут достигать значительной высоты 🤗 Некоторые учёные считают, что таким образом кипарисы, растущие в заболоченных местах, получают кислород для корневой системы, находящейся под водой. Согласно другой теории, таки корни нужны для придания дереву дополнительной устойчивости во влажной, рыхлой почве. Однозначного ответа пока нет! 🤗
РУС🇷🇺👇I took first 3 pictures of these gorgeous bald cypresses (Taxodium distichum, 🇮🇹 Cipresso delle palude) in the end of November, when they had their fall copper orange needles on 😍This tree is one of the few deciduous conifers (hence its common name "bald"), and as you can see on the next pics, by now they are really bald, carpeting all around with soft needles ❤ It's a large and long-lived tree - up to 600 years and more! As a conifer, it is also cone-bearing, right now the cones are too soft and literally fall into pieces when in hand. And they don't resemble much most conifers' cones! For me, more like those of cypresses, unfortunately I don't have a picture to share.. Какие вы знаете хвойные деревья, сбрасывающие на зиму иголки? Я - лиственницу ) А еще этой осенью открыла для себя потрясающе красивый болотный кипарис. 😍 На первых фото - в конце ноября, в прекрасном осеннем одеянии, остальные - сейчас, когда иголки (на самом деле, сбрасываются целые веточки, это называется "ветвепад") покрывают ковром все вокруг🤗. Эти деревья - долгожители, 600 лет - солидный возраст! Как и положено хвойному дереву, образует шишки, мягкие и больше похожие на шишки кипариса - отсюда и название 😊
Want to plant a Ginkgo? If you are making lists of plants to order for your garden next year, consider this dwarf, spreading, semi-pendulous Ginkgo shrub (Ginkgo biloba ‘Mariken’) which grows slowly to 3’ tall and 8’ wide. It is a male cultivar, so you won’t have to contend with any messy, smelly fruits! I found this mature specimen growing by an entrance to the #smithsonianmuseumofnaturalhistory a few months ago. #nofilter #nofilterneeded #ginkgobilobamariken #gardenplanning #dcgardens #gardendc #deciduousconifer #treesofinstagram #shrubsofinstagram #smithsoniangardens #ginkgobiloba #maidenhairtree #igdc

Photo @stephen_matera //Alpine Larch trees in their pre-autumn green beneath Tower Mountain, The Larch, sometimes called a Tamarack, is a deciduous conifer, meaning it has needles and cones, but the needles turn golden yellow in autumn and fall off for winter. I love The Larch in any color, or on Monty Python, but especially framed by sharp peaks and backlit at sunset.

Tamarack 😍 pine cones are almost like roses of winter, when all other flowers are gone, don't you think? Tamarack is a deciduous conifer, meaning it is both deciduous and coniferous. These trees form cones and sprout needles like conifer trees. Yet, they change colors in the fall and lose their needles every year like deciduous trees 😲 . . #tamarack #seed #pinecone #pineseed #rose #cone #gold #yellow #evergreen #deciduous #coniferous #deciduousconifer #everyellow #tree #hike #november #fall #gorgeous #tamaracktree #naturalbeauty #plantlover #treehugger #trustthewild #traditionalmedicinals
If you’ve ever visited Town Creek Indian Mound you’ve probably noticed the row of trees that line the parking area. And, depending when you visited, these “evergreen” trees may have looked very different! • Most trees fall into one of two categories, either deciduous or evergreen, but there is a third category of trees, deciduous conifers, which have needles that fall off in the winter! And the Bald Cypress trees at Town Creek fall into that third category. Their needles are a rich green in spring and summer and turn a coppery red in the fall before they drop, leaving the trees, well…bald! • #nchistoricsites #towncreek #towncreekindianmound #themound #tcim #trees #baldcypress #cypress #needle #evergreen #deciduous #deciduousconifer #conifer #mtgileadnc #treestagram
