Conifers

All the trees within this group are cone-bearing of some sort; they are all Gymnosperms, rather than Angiosperms, the flowering trees.

This page will cover anything that is not a Pine, a Cedar, a Cypress or a Yew which all have their own separate pages.

First up is a Dawn redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides. It’s the tree on the right, number 25. It’s a deciduous conifer, pictured here in February.

Next, another Dawn redwood. This one is down by the pond. Walking away from the white house, take the left hand path and this tree is close to the guard rail about half way down the path, near a bench.
