Conifers - Plants Slideshow

A Giant Sequoia is a conifer species Other plants that release seeds without cotyledons include the conifers. You'll find pines, redwoods, junipers, and cedars in this group of plants. The image on the right shows a Sequoia tree from California. While not the tallest, some Sequoias have grown into the largest living things on Earth. Redwood specimens now hold the title for tallest trees. Redwoods are also conifers.

More than seeing them in evergreen forests, you might know conifers from your furniture or floors. Many conifers are a source of hardwood used in homes. That strong wood allows the trees to grow to enormous heights. You can only imagine the amount of strength needed to support several tons of tree.
