Tree-Pictures.com Feature Page For February
Winter is a great time to leave the snow and cold temperatures behind and head south for some well earned R&R, so for February we are featuring our Palm Tree Pictures page.
Photos of sandy beaches, blue azure skies, and palm trees blowing in the light breeze will have you dreaming of a tropical paradise.
There are over 2500 species of palms. Most are tree-like, with single trunks and either fan shaped (palmate) or feather shaped (pinnate) compound leaves..
Of course, one of the most well known palm trees is the coconut palm.
The fruit of the coconut palm is often used to serve those delicious coconut island drinks like pina colada or a mai tai with fruit and a cocktail umbrella for decoration.
So sit back and relax under the shade of a palm tree and enjoy!
Or, if you prefer, you can visit our tree pictures blog where you can use the photos to help identify different types of tree or just browse and enjoy the artistic nature of the pictures.
Life of a Tree
In order for a plant to be classified as a tree it must be perennial (continues to grow for more than one year) and have a self supporting trunk made of woody material.
Anatomy of a Tree
A horizontal cut through the trunk of a tree will reveal growth rings. These rings tell the story of the life of the tree. Each year of growth can be seen as a layer of light and dark wood. Wide rings indicate good growing conditions whereas narrow rings may indicate a period of drought. The total number of rings will identify how old the tree is.
Whittling is the art of creating shapes out of wood using a knife to gradually shave off chips of wood until the desired design is achieved.
One might fashion a custom walking stick out of a maple tree branch by whittling.
