Product Description

In many areas Pinus is a forest dominant, either early successional or longer-lived, persisting in the late successional forest. Certain fire successional species have a “grass stage,” i.e., the stem of the young seedling elongates little during the first several years (meanwhile developing a large taproot) and bears many long, curved leaves, the plant then resembling a bunchgrass. Other species have cones that are long persistent and remain closed, opening only when heated by wildfire (such cones are called serotinous); seeds are released soon after, once the fire is out.
