- from Trees
For new trees to be born, trees need to make seeds. The first step in that process is to produce a flower or cone and get it pollinated.
Pollination is the transferring of pollen from the male part of a flower (or cone) to the female part of one. For many tree species, the tiny grains of pollen are transported by the wind. But in many flowering species, pollen is spread by pollinators—bees, butterflies birds, bats, and other creatures.
