How do trees multiply

Trees have blossoms - The reproduction of trees

Wind pollination

But there are also many trees that have two different types of flowers (e.g. hazelnut, beech, alder, pine, larch).

In these trees, male and female flowers can be seen on a branch.

The male flowers have the stamens with the pollen. Many stamens sit very close together on a stem.

The female flowers, on the other hand, have the ovules, and therefore only they can produce the seeds.

In these trees, pollination occurs by the wind by carrying the pollen from the male flowers to the female flowers. Here it sticks to the sticky scars.

It must also be mentioned here that there are monoecious and dioecious flowers (or trees).

The flowers of both sexes either sit on the same tree (monoecious) (as in oak, beech, hornbeam, birch, alder and walnut) or on different trees (dioecious), so that male and female trees can be distinguished (e.g. Willows, poplars and the ginkgo).

Other trees have so-called hermaphrodite flowers, and these have multi-colored petals, such as the fruit trees, horse chestnuts and many trees that thrive in warmer climates.
