Description: reaches a height of 25-35 metres. Its soft, flexible, blue- green needles remain on the tree for 2-3 years, then turn brown and fall in autumn. Cones are large and cylindrical, up to 20 centimetres long, and hang singly or in groups from the upper branches. After two summers of ripening they open in early autumn to release seed, and then fall.
Trees produce oxygen and store carbon dioxide and they do it day after day and year after year. As a tree grows it removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and stores it as wood fiber. It then converts that carbon dioxide into clean water and oxygen and releases it back into the atmosphere. A single tree can store over 70kg of carbon over its lifetime.
Green Gifts & Nursery has been shipping tree seedlings
across Canada since 2004 for weddings, corporate events
and other 'earth-approved' occasions. We also sell seedlings and small
trees for landscaping and forest remediation and like to work with the
land owners to insure healthy reforestation. Our NGO tree planting projects
are for very special trees and very special people.
