Come see our new line of miniature trees!
Our plastic pine tree will add a bit of green to your diorama or school project. We have plenty of animals to go with the landscape you create. Do you make model railroad layouts? Our plastic trees could lend some variety. We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic pine tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Pine" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays. Check out our other tree, flower, and plant replicas, toys and gifts.
About Pine Trees
In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant.
There are approximately 115 species of pine tree located throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Pines are evergreen resinous trees. The largest pine in the world is a 268-foot Ponderosa pine located in Oregon. The many species of pine are adapted to survive in a variety of environments and conditions, including cold mountainous regions, hot semi-desert regions, and extremely wet or dry conditions. Some species of pine actually need regualr forest fire to regenerate, and decline in areas where fire is regorously suppressed.
