Pine (scientific name: Pinus) the world's nearly eighty kinds of pine species, not only the variety and wide distribution, such as distributed in the north and northwest several provinces Chinese pine
And, the black pine and Pinus sylvestris Pine
Mount Huangshan Province, central China, Masson pine, pinus densata
, Qinba mountain pine and Pinus henryi, and Taiwan Jack Ye Song
Most of our country, the main tree species of afforestation.
Pine for the round shaped branch, internode length, branchlets straight or slightly curved downward relatively thin, slender needles into bundles. The crown looks pine canopy is not compact, "pine" is the crown feature image description. So, "loose" is a kind of tree canopy pine. Pine solid, life is very long.

Pine History of Botany
A young pine tree crown was Pyramid, a wheel with branches. Seedling emergence, cotyledon expansion, first of all, the primary leaves, solitary, spirally arranged, linear lanceolate, margin toothed leaves. 3 years after the primary leaf leaf function exercise ~ 1 only Needle
Usually, 2, 3, 5 bundles, apical short branch was born. Each bundle of coniferous base Leaf sheath
Early deciduous or persistent. The resin ducts in the mesophyll position in adult plants is relatively constant, can be divided into exogenous and endogenous health, 3 types of. pine needle
The cross section of the leaf is visible in 1 or 2 vascular bundle
Under special circumstances, can be combined in the vascular Diploxylon pines in the. Flowers unisexual, monoecious. The scales of most cones, mature after lignification. species scale
The exposed part of said thickening scale shield, Scale Shield
Strumae apex called umbo. Some species of umbo spines, some non. Cone is mature scales open, but a few tree seed shedding; various scales long kept closed. Each kind of scale with 2 seeds, seeds with a long upper wing, with few short winged or wingless .
The most obvious characteristic is the Ye Cheng pine needle, 2 needle and 3 needle or 5 needles in bunches. as Chinese pine
, Mount Huangshan Pine
The leaves of 2 needle, White bark pine
The leaves of 3 needle, Korean pine
, Huashan pine
, White pine
The leaves of 5 needle.
For pine Monoecism
Plants and spores of the Ye Cheng cone shaped arrangement, the formation of the female and male flower. Female flowers single or 2 4 was born in the new top, most male flowers gathered in the lower branches. Pine cones generally open in the spring and summer, but
The pine tree
Pollen to the female cones after second years before the summer to germination, the female fertilization develops into cones (commonly known as pine or pine cones, not fruit). In the autumn cone scales mature, open, each kind of scales with two seeds.
Most of the species in the genus Pinus is tall trees, and lack of good material, dongliangzhicai. China northeast "Wood King", pine of western North America widely distributed tall trees (75 meters high), ponderosa pines, originating in the United States California
The coastal pine - the fastest growth rate Radiata
Native to the southeastern United States, p.ellottee, America Caribbean
The origin of the Caribbean pine, area widely distributed in the western and northern Eurasia Scots pine
And so on, are all famous timber species.
Pine ornamental value is Be obvious to people
The. In China, can see the pine shadows from the Royal classical gardens to modern residents of the home, such as Beijing, the Summer Palace in Beihai Chinese pine
, White bark pine
Widely used in bonsai pine trees, some mountain resort, is a mountain with pine, Pine Mountain famous with strong potential. Mount Huangshan Guest-Greeting Pine
Huashan Huashan pine
Changbai Mountain Beauty pine
...... Without the visitors praise.
In addition, the root parts of pine trees often have large fungal growth. Some of them are wood rotting fungi, can decompose the pine trees, causing root rot; some ectomycorrhizal fungi, interchangeable nutrition and pine trees to prevent nutritional deficiencies, resulting in the effect of growth.
Pine Morphological character
After the maturity of up to 45 meters, DBH
1.5 meters; bark red brown, lower gray brown, split into pieces of irregular scaly; branches spreading or oblique, crown wide tower or umbellate, branches grown every year round, but in the south of Guangdong is usually growing two rounds, light yellow brown, no pigment, rare white, glabrous; winter buds ovoid cylindrical or cylindrical, brown, tip, bud scale margin filiform, apex acuminate or long pointed, micro music.
The pine leaves
Conifer needles in bunches of 2, thin needles in bunches of 3, 12-20 cm long, slender, slightly distorted, both sides have stomatal lines, margin serrulate; cross section skin layer cells single type, the first layer of consecutive second layers by the individual Cells
Intermittent arranged, about 4-8 resin on the back side, there are 2 students, or ventral edge; leaf sheath at the beginning of a brown, after gradually into the black, persistent. Male flowers reddish brown, terete, bent, 1-1.5 cm long, crowded on lower branches in bract axils, spicate, 6-15 cm long; female flowers solitary or clustered shoots was born in 2-4 near the top, purple red, round or oval fruit annual ball, diameter of about 2 cm, brown or purple brown, the upper ovuliferous scale the umbo with short spines on the upright, blunt umbo lower ovuliferous scale unarmed. Cones ovoid or conical ovoid, 4-7 cm long, 2.5-4 cm in diameter, with short stems, drooping before mature green, cooked chestnut brown, gradually glabrescent; middle scales near oblong obovate, or nearly oblong, ca. 3 cm; placoid rhombic, slightly raised or flat, slightly obvious transverse ridge umbo, slightly concave, unarmed, was born in the dry environment often with short spines; seed ovoid, 4-6 mm long, with wings 2-2.7 cm long; cotyledon 5-8; 1.2-2.4 cm long; primary leaf shaped, 2.5-3.6 cm long, leaf margin with sparsely serrate bristles.
The pine tree is pine kossen genus collectively, evergreen coniferous trees, monoecious. Branch whorls, a section or a number of annual festival, winter bud bud scales most significantly. Bud and leaf scales (primary leaf), stamens, bracts, and scales are ovuliferous scale spiral arrangement. Scale leaves solitary, young green, linear, and then gradually degenerated into brown, membranous bractlike, in the axilla (out of coniferous leaves; 2 times), 3 or 5 conifer needles in bunches, born in undeveloped short branches, the base of each beam needles surrounded by membranous sheath.
Monoecious, flowers unisexual; male flowers solitary shoots lower bract axils, mostly aggregated, 2 stamens numerous, anther, pollen chamber crack, developed with two airbags, airbag and body contact surface is small, well-defined, generally have significant amplitude margin; female flowers with 1-4 shoots was born near the top, with most of the Pearl scales and bracts, ventral basal scales with every bead two anatropous, when pollination, second years will increase rapidly as the cone. 2 years when ripe mature cones, scales of open, not open, thin, long ovate, ovate suborbicular or terete, erect or pendulous; scales of woody, persistent, above parts usually have obvious hypertrophy as scale shield, transverse ridge or transverse ridge, apex or central multi scale shield with strumose convex or concave umbo, spiny or unarmed, developmental scales with 2 seed; on upper wing, cotyledons 3 ~ 18, germination unearthed.
Some kind of solid pine earlier, 5 to 6 years can have a small amount of fruit, 15 ~ 20 years increased significantly (masson pine, Yunnan pine, etc.); some kind of strong late, such as Korean pine in natural forest conditions, to 80 to 140 years to start strong (but in artificial forest under the condition of 15 ~ 20 years has been strong). Most pine strong interval of every 2 to 3 years or more in annual harvest time. The base is located in the new Matsuki O cone tip, female Thyrsiflorum
The most common in the main shaft end. Mature cones have a fairly long process. A few tropical pine pollen cones and female cones in winter at the end of the bud, the pine cones in most early spring, late spring or early summer from bud in. Male flowers fascicled, mature before green or yellow to red, pollen shedding is light brown or brown, mature shortly after falling off. Female flowers appear immediately in male flowers, green or purple red. When the female cones in pollination zhilizhuang. After pollination, the scales began to slow growth cones closed. About 13 months after pollination after the spring or early summer Be fertilized
Then, cones begin to grow rapidly, usually at the end of the summer and autumn of second years after the mature, mature cones, its color gradually changed from green to purple, yellow, light brown or dark brown. Most mature pine cones shortly after the scale is opened, the seed falls off rapidly (masson pine, Pinus tabulaeformis); there are a few pine scales open and seed shedding process to continue for several months. Some pine trees, all or part of a cone years is closed or not regularly open in the tree. Cones large and heavy, immature and easily by the wind.
Pine Distribution range
Because of the difference of geographical distribution in origin, native China pine, Pinus sylvestris, Xinjiang pine, Pinus pumila most cold, heat of minimum requirements. The heat has a lower requirement of Korean pine. Akamatsu, Chinese pine, Pinus bungeana, Huashan pine, mountain pine, Mount Huangshan pine, Pinus henryi for tree species in warm temperate zone and subtropical high altitude areas of heat medium. Masson pine, Yunnan pine, Simao pine and pine Joe distributed in more southerly regions, requiring high heat. South pine is tropical pine, to heat the highest requirements. On the wet conditions, White pine
The two is generally higher than the pine needle, but also different. As for the cases of Pinus koraiensis and Huashan pine, the former than the latter more humid conditions; the same as the two needle pine pine and Pinus massoniana of moist condition is higher than that of pine and Yunnan pine. This is related to the geographic distribution of substitution with the longitude and the occurrence of.
Pine Growth environment
Pine Soil requirements
The pine tree can grow in a variety of soils. Because the needles can endure low ash content, poor soil, but in the fertile soil of the high productivity of osteoporosis. In humid areas most suitable acidity soil of pine. While some pine trees, such as pine and Chinese pine, can adapt to the amount of calcium and high soil pH. Pine root mycorrhiza
Symbiotic bacteria. The main body of the ectomycorrhizal mycelia into the sheath surrounded by short lateral roots, is conducive to the absorption of water and nutrients. It is essential to induce mycorrhizal development of some Pine Afforestation success. Most pine trees cannot grow in saline soil, and not near Seaside
Growth. But some such as pine from Japan introduced to China with lodgepole pine, stronger salt tolerance.
Pine Negative resistance
Most pine especially two needle pine is the light tree species, weak negative resistance. The shape is a sparse crown, natural pruning; physiological manifestations compensation point is low; in the forest on the characteristics of pioneer tree species. When the original forest is destroyed or after the fire, they are easy to develop and occupy the bare space. Such as the southern region of China evergreen broad-leaved forest destroyed, very easily by Masson pine or Yunnan instead of. But the pine is not stable, when they formed the appropriate forest environment, and some of the more basic shade of the forest species were mainly aspen and birch and other broad-leaved trees, then appear pine, and because of the pine with shade and long life characteristics, and finally restore its dominant position. In addition to each other outside the Korean pine and Aspen, birch replacement, and Mongolia oak (oak) each replacement and the phenomenon of Korean pine.
Pine Drought resistance
The pine tree has the xeromorphic structure: the leaves are narrow, developed cuticle, surface area and volume ratio of small, sunken stomata, sclerenchyma fully developed. In physiology, compared them and born in the broad-leaved species, more tolerant of water shortage and damage. In ecology, pines are xerophils. In a variety of pine distribution in different climate zone mostly grow in arid habitats in rocky and shallow soil. In general, two needle pine pine strong drought resistance ratio. Excessive soil moisture on pine growth disadvantage.
Pine Growth climate
The pine tree on the terrestrial environment adaptability. They can withstand -60 low temperature or high temperature of 50 DEG C, in mineral soil, bare sand, Volcano
Grey, calcareous soil, limestone
Soil and podzolic soil to soil by growth in various soils, drought resistance, barren, love the sun, it is the famous pioneer species. Chinese is one of the most abundant gymnosperm species of the countries in the world, only from the point of view can be fully demonstrated the Pinaceae, China is worthy of the name "hometown of gymnosperms". In Chinese vast mountain wilderness, not only with lush pine, larch
In the forest, and some of the many hidden in the dense forests in the deep mountains is very precious and rare species of pinaceae. In the first national publication focused on the protection of rare and endangered plants, there are 39 species of Pinaceae plants (389 species), accounting for 1/10. among cathaya argyrophylla
Is listed as a key protected plant, abies beshanzuensis
17 listed two key protected plants, Keteleeria davidiana var. calcarea
, Pinus sylvestris
21 listed three key protected plants.
Pine Breeding method
The main pine seedling breeding by seed seedling or branch cuttings, in addition, direct otherwise founded by Chinese researchers with pine needle beam method for clonal seedling breeding, i.e.: Shu Yumiao needles
Pine cultivation techniques
Pine seedling technique Planting seedling selection 
Seedling should choose loose soil, deep soil sandy loam, flat terrain, good drainage and irrigated plots as well. It has root mycorrhizal fungi symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi on promoting seedling growth with good effect, which can promote seedling root absorption in soil moisture and nutrients, improve the ability of seedlings to drought and disease. Therefore, the suitable cropping seedling of Pinus bungeana. [and] sand Seeds Germination
The winter indoor stratification and Germination
. Sand germinating in soil Freeze
Before. Select clean and intact house doors and windows were all disinfected, sterilized and the humidity is about 60% of the pure sand piled up inside, with pure bag seeds and sand according to the proportion of 1:3 installed, the sand and seed volume of total volume of bag 30% ~ 40%, and then the bag is flat layer buried in the sand, the sand covered straw pay attention to ventilation, moisturizing frost. When the seeds have 40% ~ 50% gap can be sown.
The container nursery seedling or seedling bed. Nursery use drilling, sowing rate of 40 to 50 kilograms per mu, after sowing, covered with plastic film or straw, straw covering of 1% concentration formalin
Or carbendazim disinfection solution. [in]
25 ~ 30 days after sowing, seedling emergence with shells, shell about 15 days off on their own, in this period to prevent the destruction of animals and birds. To strengthen the prevention should be off after the shell off, a week of carbendazim, ferrous sulfate 2 times to 3 times alternately spraying seedlings. With the concentration of ferrous sulfate is 0.3% ~ 0.5% water solution, in front of a man behind a person with water spray, wash, otherwise prone to injury. The seedling growth process should pay attention to proper watering, weeding.
Pinus bungeana seedlings grow slowly, first year seedling height only 4 cm to 5 cm, 10 cm in second years, 4 years to 5 year old seedling height of 30 cm to 40 cm, 10 year old seedlings of 1 meters high. Seedlings after 2 ~ 3 times to cultivate seedlings transplanted in the training process. Usually 1 to 2 years old seedlings were first transplant, 1 years to 2 years of re cultivation for forestation. The 5 year old seedlings of second transplant, 8 years to 10 years were third times of transplantation. After third times after transplantation, can be used in landscaping.
Pine Planting afforestation
Planting afforestation techniques vary depending on the types of seedlings. Container seedling balled planting process, the root is not easy to damage, so the higher survival rate. Afforestation technology is also relatively simple. Bare root transplanting process in seedling root activity, most of the small damage, its survival depends on root regeneration ability and environmental conditions, but also affected by various factors such as age, quality of seedling, planting season and planting method. Because the transplanted seedlings root, rhizome ratio, survival rate is generally higher than that of native seedlings. The afforestation seedling mainly depends on species, generally 2 to 3 years of Korean pine seedlings is appropriate, but in deforested weeds lush lots, with 3 ~ 4 year old seedling is appropriate. Chinese Pine Afforestation in rainy season in North China with more than 1.5 year old seedlings, planting in spring with more than 2 year old seedlings or transplants. With 1 years of Pinus massoniana seedlings even with autumn sowing in spring in the hundred days seedling afforestation. General in early spring suitable planting season, and in the spring drought severe north and Northwest China can choose the rainy afforestation in 7 and August. There are two kinds of planting and planting joint planting methods to keep moist, seedling root, plant root that stretch, covered with soil at. For the injured and long roots before planting can be properly trimmed. Afforestation in arid areas can take various measures to weaken the surface evaporation. The seedling planting point configuration, each general is planted 1 trees, but there are also planted, each plantation planted 2 ~ 4 lines. Vegetation is beneficial to improving the survival rate and promote the growth of young trees. The planting density of 4444 plants per hectare to pine (5 x 1.5 m spacing 1) is appropriate, can take 3333 plants per hectare (1.5 x 2 m spacing), and 2500 strains (2 x 2 m spacing).
Pine pure forest prone to pests and fires, productivity is low, so no matter by planting or sowing afforestation, should pay attention to build mixed forest. Mixed type can be determined through long term test. In the northeast of Chinese, common and Korean pine
Natural mixed species are Tilia amurensis
, betula costata
Fish, spruce, Picea abies, etc..
Pine Pest control
Common diseases of Sooty Blotch, leaf spot, available 0.5% ~ 1% Bordeaux, in a month before the rainy season, spraying l times every 10 days, 3 times in a row, you can play a preventive effect. The main pest insects cryptothelea formosicola, red wax scale, red spider, available 1200 ~ 1500 dichlorvos times Pensha, also can use 40% dimethoate 1500 times pensha.
In the most common and serious occurrence of symptoms is cataplexy, rotting before unearthed seeds, and top rot, unearthed after Rhizoctonia, cataplexy and other types. The seedling of Pinus massoniana pine seedlings leaf blight and sometimes severe damage. Leaf diseases are common, loose needle needle rust disease and blight of Pinus massoniana. After the two occurred in the site of poor, barren soil, poor stand growth. A blister rust and white stem disease Pine blister rust
That is an important forest diseases in the world, in Europe, North America had destroyed large 5-needled pine forest; Northeast China pine plantation was severely damaged. Masson pine, Mount Huangshan pine forest in the nest of wind and high humidity, oak, with pine rust; pine root white rot disease is also quite common.
Pine Pine caterpillar
Is the main pine defoliator, often cause great losses. The main harm of Pinus massoniana and matsutake moth needle of Pinus tabulaeformis in Guangxi, often with Pine caterpillar
Confused, to serious disaster. Epinotia rubiginosana, big bag moth larvae also serious damage. SIASUN in different distribution areas in intermittent sawfly. Dioryctria rubella almost all over the country, is the main pest of main shoot borer, the collateral or because of replacement of main shoots and clusters of trunk bending. Pine shoot moth, also can make the main victims of shoot wilt. Cone cone borer infestation. Conifer beetle and beetle is insect borers were branch and stem, the pine trees into death, but generally not healthy wood. Huashan pine beetle healthy Huashan pine, to serious disaster. Pine bark beetles and twelve teeth eight teeth and larch bark beetle ips typographus linnaeus
Can healthy wood. Matsucoccus is a kind of destructive pest infestation sucking branches. In order to implement the principle of silvicultural measures suitable tree, reasonable mixed and good forestry management should be prevented, when necessary, supplemented by chemical control.
Pine Pine wood nematode
Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum was first discovered in Nanjing in 1982, after another in Jiangsu, Anhui, Guangdong and Zhejiang, almost destroyed the disaster, widely distributed in the Hongkong pine forest. Close communication mainly rely on media such as longhorn beetle, Monochamus alternatus, carry propagation; long distance depends on artificial transportation with the epidemic (with beetles of pine wood nematode) seedlings, pine, pine box and pine products spread. By the pine wood nematode infected pine needles, yellow brown or reddish brown, wilt drooping, resin secretion stops in the trunk can be observed on the penetration hole or spawning traces of beetles, trees in the whole plant dry death, wood blue. A serious threat to the timber forest. Due to rapid expansion, now in Mount Huangshan, Zhangjiajie and other scenic spots in the natural coniferous forest poses a great threat. Through the medium of insect pathogenic nematodes Monochamus alternatus
Enter the pine xylem nutrition from the wound, parasitic on resin, blooms throughout the whole plant, caused by catheter obstruction, plant transpiration water loss, reduced secretion of resin sharply reduced and stop. In summer and autumn leaf wilting chlorotic yellow to reddish brown, red pine in the dead plant, and when the needles do not fall off, there are a large number of trunk longicorn parasitic traces, the xylem is blue.
(1) pine resin normal appearance, secretion decreased, transpiration decreased in shoots are often visible monochamus gnawing bark traces;
The leaves begin to change color, resin secretion stops in addition to monochamus nutrition traces, can also be found spawning groove;
Most of the needles into brown, wilting, visible m.alternatus frass;
All the needles turned brown to reddish brown, trees in the whole plant withered and died. Control measures of artificial cutting trees to prevent epidemic mortality, or carry the wood Sawyer spread, bagged fumigate m.alternatus, the use of natural enemies of sclerodermaguani, beetle.
Pine The main value
In addition to the economic use of pine, because the trees are magnificent, vigorous, tall tree, longevity, but also has important ornamental value. It is an important component of many scenic landscape Chinese. Such as Liaoning Qianshan
Shandong, Taishan, Jiangxi Mount Lu to pine famous scenery. Especially in Anhui, Mount Huangshan, pine, cloud, stone known as "Sanjue", and led to loose. Around many pines have close ties with China has a long history of culture. Such as Beijing Beihai city has 800 year old pine tree legend has been dubbed "shade Hou Qing qianlong"; Mount Tai
" Five doctor
"Legend is Qin Shihuang mountain in this rain is sealed with the official post. The people of the Chinese pine firm, as a symbol of chastity and longevity. Pine, bamboo and plum known" Pine, bamboo and plum blossom
"Yu, afraid of adversity to overcome the difficulties and tough spirit.
According to the structural characteristics and material properties, will generally be divided into pine pine and pine hardwood. Pine (single bundle subgenus) relatively soft, uniform texture, low intensity, easy processing, earlywood and latewood gradient, less wing crack. The pine hardwood (i.e. double bundle subgenera) heavy hard, uneven texture, high strength, processing is difficult, earlywood and latewood blast, Turpentine
High content. But belongs to the pine in Hainan pine and Southern China pine in strength and bulk density close to the hard wood. Many uses of pine wood for the construction, poles, sleepers, pillar, bridges, tools, appliances, furniture etc.. The cellulose content of pine is about 50 ~ 60%, lignin is 25 ~ 30%, is one of the most important raw material for pulp and paper industry. Pine is also used as firewood.
Cut can be extracted from rosin and turpentine pine trunk Terebentylic
Oil. Pine seeds are rich in protein and fat, oil content in more than 30%, including the edible value of 20 kinds, such as found in the Chinese Korean pine
, Yan Song
Huashan pine, etc.. Korean pine seeds can be used as medicine, drug name" The sea pine
", is a kind of nourishing agent. Pine bark and seed rich in tannins, soaking extraction of tannin extract. The bark is crushed and mixed with other raw materials, the pressure can be made of hard fiberboard. In addition it can also be used to extract volatile oil from pine needles of pine needles. Conifer contains rich carotene, vitamins, fat, protein, calcium, phosphorus and other mineral elements, can be processed into feed additives for poultry and livestock. The use of pine, Morgan
The incomplete combustion in the kiln, can be prepared and loose (see wood pyrolysis), used in the manufacture of ink, ink and black paint. Pine and pine or cultivation of valuable medicinal materials of Poria cocos.
To sum up, with the amazing effects of fresh pine needles known and covered the rich resources of the country, will be cited as a symbol of the industrial revolution leading health care products. Masson

Pine chemical composition Landrace
Larix olgensis Henry var.koreana Nakai is the larch Larix sinirica plants, deciduous trees, leaves on long shoots spirally scattered, fascicled on short shoots, linear oblanceolate, 1~2.5 cm long. Monoecious, flowers solitary short shoot tip, young cones reddish purple, cooked to light brown or brown. Bark brown, containing tannin. Pine bark extract is widely used as a food additive and health products sold or exported abroad, has been useful to the development of drugs listed pine bark extract. Pharmacological research showed that pine bark extract on antioxidant, scavenging free radicals, have extensive biological activities of anti-tumor, cardiovascular protection and improve microcirculation etc.. Located in Jilin Changbai Mountain China Larix olgensis Heilongjiang district and Mudanjiang basin. In the forest the bark was used as waste disposal. Prior to this, there is no chemical composition of the pine bark had done systematic research reports, therefore, consider whether from the basic research and application development from the point of view, are necessary to make a deep and systematic study of chemical constituents of Changbai larch bark, and then find the active ingredients.

The pine body is a treasure, the trunk is very wide use of wood, is also a high-quality papermaking raw material, pine resin liquid can produce rosin and turpentine and pine needles, past in logging process is basically to rot or burned, not only a waste of forest resources, but also easily lead to forest fires, caused soil acidification, cause plant diseases and insect pests. Pine bark in pine oleoresin collected but will pay a heavy price and a little income, only a year in a pine pine bark after cutting ring collected turpentine can only sell 2 yuan, ten years total sales of 20 yuan, cut the bark of pine 8-10 years can not become useful, because no food way dead, so destructive harvesting, can result in a depletion of resources and waste. The collection belongs to non destructive pine needles collected (on a quarterly basis only by 1/3-1/4, or acquisition), without any effect on the growth of the pine tree, can turn waste into treasure. However, not only has medicinal value for the prevention and treatment of oxidative stress and metabolic diseases such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, and health care efficacy, rich in amino acids in pine needles, fat soluble and water-soluble vitamins and trace elements in 40 kinds of major elements and a variety of crude fiber and that can develop a variety of immune enhancement, lipid-lowering, sedative, anti-aging and other categories of health food, beverage and wine, but also the development of skin care products, shampoo, bath products, pillow and other daily necessities. Boiling process without pollution and residue of chemical additives is treasure, can be used as feed additives, organic fertilizer, or breeding mushroom, activate a series of industrial chain, the revitalization of medicine, health care, aquaculture, chemical and beverage industries, science and technology play a role in promoting industrial development.
Pine Variety classification
Pine cathaya argyrophylla
Compared with Abies beshanzuensis, cathaya argyrophylla
The famous 20 years earlier. Although the scholars Chinese plant Yangxianjin
As early as 1938, the Jinfo Mountain in Sichuan to the plant foliage specimens, but because there is no flower and cone, this specimen has not been identified. Until 1955, Professor Zhong Jixin led a scientific expedition in Guangxi County, Long Sheng Huaping forest to cone plant specimens, only by botanist Chen Huanyong and Kuang cathayaargyrophylla was named. Is a kind of Cathaya always thought extinct early in the fossil plants, its fossils and pollen cones, were found third to 60 degrees north of the Cretaceous strata in Siberia area and southwest France. To find the botanist shocked fir, western scholars of China more sit up and take notice. The world's only Chinese live silver fir, too small, only a few thousand lines, scattered in the Jinfo Mountain in Sichuan, Guangxi and Hunan, Huaping Dayaoshan community and eight mountains, Guizhou Fushan road really and the mountains of Tongzi, very rare. cathaya argyrophylla
Only grow cold, in winter and summer without the heat, the rich precipitation, the air is very humid in the mountains, very demanding on the environment. Therefore, although the attitude of tolerance and elegant, fine wood, but it is difficult to introduction and training, is still the world of Botany and gardening circles and can not be expected for the trees of treasures. People love to give it many beautiful silver fir, the name: "living fossil plants", "plant Panda", "Chinese forest treasure" and "Linhai pearl"...... A longing for it as soon as possible out of the mountains, colorful light. Dense brown or reddish brown pilose. Cone length 9 ~ 14 cm, mature scales do not open or open micro. The seed does not fall off, no wings (Figure 1). Is China Xiao Xingan Ling
And the main forest species in Changbai Mountain area. In the Northwest Chinese community Aihui to Bei'an line, southwest community Dandong
To Benxi line. By China to the northeast also spread to Heilongjiang and Wusuli River east of the Soviet Far Eastern coastal area, southward to Korea and Japan in central Honshu, Shikoku mountain.
Pine abies beshanzuensis
20 years ago, few people in the world know a Baishanzu mountain in the southeast coast of China. In 1976, Qingyuan County of Zhejiang Forestry Institute senior engineer Wu Mingxiang "blockbuster", by his discovery of Abies beshanzuensis was published, the baishanzunaturereserve the "forgotten corner" in the world of Botany radiate splendor. 50 kinds of known fir, Abies beshanzuensis most precious. Because on earth only Chinese baishanzunaturereserve peak in Zhejiang Province southwest slope the tree growth, living only 3 strains, one strain was weak, malnutrition. For a species, not half step away from death. In 1987, the International Commission for the protection of the species of Abies beshanzuensis was listed as one of the world's most rare published 12 kinds of endangered plants. China relevant units also take active measures, hope that through the method of artificial propagation of the endangered plant in the corner.

The tree like light and strong, to light gradually increased with the growth of the tree. For mild cool climate, soil pH value in 5.5-6.5, the growth of the hillside area. Korean pine
Branchlets, Pinaceae) is Gymnospermae
In most families, 10 genera and 230 kinds, including Pinus there are more than 90 kinds, is the largest genera of Pinaceae is the gymnosperm in. Pine is one of the most important forest species in the northern hemisphere, in addition to 2 degrees south latitude distribution of the Sumatran pine, the rest are all natural growth in from the equator to 72 degrees north latitude of the mountains and plains. Especially in temperate regions, Pinus many, and often form a vast forest, the pine tree is known as "the mother of the northern hemisphere forest".
Pine Xinjiang pine Xinjiang pine
(P.sibirica), and the morphology of Pinus koraiensis is similar to that of the main characteristics of branchlets yellowish hairs; cone length 5 ~ 8 cm; apex rounded scales, incurvature. In the Chinese distribution in Xinjiang Altai Mountains
Northwest of the Canas River and the Holm River Basin, the vertical distribution in the elevation of 1600 - 2350 meters, often mixed with Xinjiang larch. European U.S.S.R. northeast and Siberia also have distribution.
There are many pine species, ornamental trees Podocarpus

The pine ( P. cembra
), northeast of pine, northwest and southwest provinces of Huashan pine, and Joe pine, Guangdong pine, Anhui pine, Pinus dabeshanensis, pine, Taiwan pine etc..
Pine needles are different, it is helpful to the pine tree classification and identification, understanding the ecological characteristics of pine trees. Usually pine is suitable for moist environment, soil requirements more stringent, and the two or three pin beam is more resistant to drought, pine, also can grow in thin soil. Such as pine needles in bunches of two, has strong adaptability to continental climate and atmospheric drought and of course, this also with needles of stomatal band sag. The leaf wax was part of the evaporation can be reduced.

Pine The famous ancient painting of pine
In Chinese landscape paintings, pine performance accounted for an important position, has become an independent subject.
The ancient painting in loose turquoise dotted the landscape, has formed a kind of ethos in the Tang Dynasty landscape painting, and the emergence of many famous landscape painters of the turquoise turquoise, they as a part of the landscape, deliberately processing, so that the screen shows "extremely wonderful charm". In the Tang Dynasty Zhangzao
Write very loose, can use style, often with a double, Qi, a branch, a litter, high potential Ling Cha haze, wind and rain, tooth shape, scale cracked with arbitrary aspect, it is run out between the branches, with the spring of Ze, litter is miserable with autumn." Zhang Zao "nature outside, in the heart" is the ancient artists in mind become China painting in the eternal. The five generation of the beam The same
In seclusion Taihang Mountain
"Hon", a "farming and food", a thorough observation of nature, the "Xiang scales by empty", "desire of Hon pines, make him feel surprised," write with pens complex, where tens of thousands of the combined party."
The Northern Song Dynasty Cheng Li
In the Song Dynasty. Li Tang
, Horse far
The Yuan Dynasty. Wang Meng
, different time, different artists, because of different aesthetic taste, loose natural painting showing a different form. Before the Tang Dynasty painter meticulously depicts the ideal realm of the pursuit of truth, to reproduce the real images. and The five generation
Later, the artists not only can imitate nature, more in the heart, the life feeling and natural changes loose combination, to give people loose character and character, make the work of artistic conception, meaning richer and more profound, more personalized. The ancient painters after long-term artistic creation, summed up a very complete and systematic painting theory, has formed a distinctive artistic program, its complete system and extremely flexible, reflect the nature of the painter keen understanding and profound experience of art. Drawing and painting in the song The rocks
The characters and flowers, like a rich style, we can say that it is a processing method for the type of easy to grasp, in order to find the typical form of linguistic reality scene painter from numerous trivial messy in. Song painting art
Pine has a masculine beauty, it is just the branches with characteristics of soft, loose leaf to clear off the feeling. It is our nation's auspicious tree, evergreen is a symbol of old. Some like pine, dragon, said Qiu song, its branches and changeable, straight at the open, bending it, Dragon Castle with some exploration; Song straight, extraordinary changes, like Dragon into the sea state; over days, some giant and resolute, have to pull off the potential of cloud drilling.
Pine is one of the largest trees in landscape application, whether in the wilderness or mountain pine trees are found. The pine tree can also be used as the main image performance. The growth in the fertile plains of the pine trees tall and lush, tall and often high into the clouds; the growth gap in the rocks, often twists and turns, such as dragon disc. Their common features are: growth to a certain age, and no longer to the higher, and more branches cross, forming an umbrella, "as long as the branch, leaf period". Draw a loose, first to "feelings", the late Tang and Five Dynasties landscape painting master Jing Hao, he saw the graceful pines, "because of the different times and the police, the reward. Tomorrow with pen carbon, where tens of thousands of the combined party". This "true", not like photography, but to seize the pine soul, so to depict the pine "skin old dark green moss, Xiang scales by" empty "Pan Qiu force wants to attach the Hon", or "hold the festival since Qu", or "back to the roots of unearthed", because of his affection Jing Hao the pine, can do careful observation and research, realize painting wonderful principle loose.

Pine Wonders when dry The drought will issue a distress signal"
Researchers at the University of Grenoble in France will dry pine chips into the hydrogel to simulate A live tree test, and have isolated the ultrasonic sound, the sound of a hundred times faster than human audible. The researchers will be put into a gel made in arid environment, and listen to the noise generated by the formation of bubbles, this process is similar to the scene when the trees of drought .
Chief Philippe Marmottant said the experimenter, although laboratory tests only obtain an approximate result, but it helps us to separate from the sound of trees. This is the first time the hydrogel used for this purpose. He said: "we can trace the clear sound, and we found that most of the sound and the bubble, which cannot be excluded, such as cracks or insects and other reasons.
Drought when the trees absorb moisture will try from dry land bubble formation. When the leaves are collected as carbon dioxide, it will open the pores, which makes them vulnerable to the harm of water loss. The tree with its root to absorb water from the ground, and through the catheter to deliver. The trees are usually thousands of catheter, rely on the wall hole film are connected with each other. In xylem tension will increase, and then form the hole.
Citibank and pine wood usually always in repair the damage, if the transmission of these bubbles to block water, so they are for other kinds of trees is fatal. It is expected to be published in the summer of 2013.
Pine Mummy pine Norway discovered pine mummy does not rot after 500 years
According to "Science Daily" website reported that scientists in Norway found a "Mummy" of pine trees, many trees here have been dead for nearly 500 years, but the magic is in the open, moist environment does not decay.
Located in the Sogndal area (Sogndal) Norway
Southwest coast, Norway here is the most humid and most gentle place. In general, the wet weather is very suitable for the decomposition of organic matter, but here found a large dead pine trees, but no decay.
Terje Thun, an associate professor at the Norwegian University Science & Technology Museum of natural history (Terje Thun) said: "we took samples from the dead trees, trees on the determination results in the display age than previously expected to grow a lot of these pines in the late thirteenth Century, about 500 years ago in death."
Thun said: "we still found fresh wood of dead trees, which makes us feel very surprised. For some reason, they can actually keep not rot for hundreds of years in the humid climate. This phenomenon is very special, and even sensational."
Thun explained that the process of death of pine trees is relatively slow, the whole process will produce rosin, this substance can stop the rot. "Anyway, hundreds of years of trees decomposing naturally be prevented, it is really amazing." It is reported that the resin is one of the ancient Egyptian mummies have made use of the material, people will understand its antiseptic ability of thousands of years ago.
