Andalucian trees CEIP Luis Cernuda

  2. 2. “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, address only the facts of life and see if I could learn what she had to teach. I wanted to live deep and discard anything that is not life ... To not realize at the time of his death, he had not lived.” Henry David Thoreau
  3. 3. PINSAPO (Abies pinsapo Boiss) The pinsapo is a hardy tree that can reach 30 meters. Has a conical bearing branches are arranged horizontally. For register] he leaves spirally on the twigs, the whole is cylindrical. They bloom in spring. In September or October the blunders, which are erect and cylindrical, mature and dismantle spreading the seeds. It is located on mountain slopes and summits
  4. 4. Pine (Pinus pinea L.) Medium-sized tree. Adults have the umbrella-shaped crown. Its bark is composed of plates separated by cracks reddish gray. It has well- developed secondary roots to extract water from deeper layers. Juveniles have [as blue-green leaves and those of adults show a light green living. It blooms in spring, no pine nuts ripen, it can maintain its ability to germinate for several years. It is a long-lived tree, reaching up to 500 years to live Prefers sandy soils, deep and rich. Lives in interior and coastal dunes, supporting strong winds, including coastal salt impregnated. Does not require a lot of rain, but requires full sun.
  5. 5. The oak tree is more characteristic of Spain. Cup is wide, rounded and dense, with shallow roots that can emit shoots. The leaves are evergreen and almost round. Usually flowers in spring and spread the fruits in autumn. The acorn is a long oval, with a very short stalk and a dome, like a cap that covers the base. It has a fast growing and is one of my long-lived trees, being able to find individuals with 700-800 years. It presents a wide ecological amplitude. It grows in all soil types especially limestone, resistant to cold, heat and drought, and is located to 1,400 meters above sea level. Isolated individuals and shrubs can reach up to 1,900 meters. SOUTH OAK (Quercus rotundifolia Lam.)
  6. 6. CAROB (Ceratonia siliqua L.) Ceratonia The name refers to the shape of a horn with fruits and siliqua is the name of carob and other fruit is a pod. The carob tree is a little high, generally does not exceed six meters, gray bark, broad crown and thick evergreen leaves and compound. The fruit, carob is a legume seeds elongated shiny and hard. It flowers in autumn. The completion of the seeds is difficult. It's kind of slow growth and poor support transplantation. It adapts to all soil types but prefers the limestone. Supports well the drought but not cold, so preferably installed in low areas and sheltered. Usually found as small stands or mixed with other species, notably oak and cork oak.
  7. 7. Wild Olive Tree (Olea europaea var. Sylvestris) The wild olive tree is a dense rounded crown, but usually present horn bush. The branches are thorny ends and the leaves are laceoladas and perennials. Flowers in clusters, are white. The fruit, the acebuchina, is a drupe ellipsoid, slightly fleshy, blackish at maturity. It blooms in May or June and the fruits ripen in autumn and winter. It's a very long- lived species. The olive tree is thermophilic, resisting drought and heat, but sensitive to frost frequent and intense. It prefers rich soils and basic and low-lying areas, although in the Andalusian mountains bound itself to 1,500 meters.
  8. 8. THE MIERA JUNIPER (Juniperus oxycedrus L.) Although usually a shrub or small tree 3 to 5 meters, known copies of 20 m. It rnuy branched and has a pointed crown. The bark peels off in sheets or narrow strips rnuy developed roots, allow them to fasten even rocks. The leaves, which are triverticiladas is Anqui have an almost straight with the branches. Flowers at the beginning of spring and the fruit ripens the second year, which is abayas, globose and red. Need light, as is found in mushrooms and sun-drenched slopes of the mountains. It develops on all soil types, selecting the loose and rocky. It is very resistant to cold and drought.
  9. 9. The cork oak is an evergreen tree and middle class that highlights its thick, spongy bark, cork, made up of dead plant material. When uncorked, the trunk appears smooth and reddish. The crown is irregular or umbrella- shaped. Flowering is continuous, since April even fall. acorns have annual maturation in three stages, the first in September, the second in autumn and the third in late January. Achieves its optimum ecoi6gico siliceous soils, loose and fresh, warm and temperate climates, something wet and no frost, tempered by the sea. Choose low elevation slopes sheltered from northerly winds. Where compliance with these requirements as their own forests, cork oak forests, displacing the oak. But normally found dehesa. Cork oak (Quercus suber L.)
  10. 10. MORA sabina (Juniperus phoenicea L.) It is an evergreen shrub or small sapling, up to 8 m. high. The crown is dense, very similar to the cypress. The trunk may appear twisted or bent by the wind and years. the leaves are tiny and are closely tied to the branches. Flowering occurs in late winter or spring. Originate a fleshy fruits globose, green at first and that after maturing next year turn red. It takes place in all soil types and conditions. Usually in such inhospitable places as coastal dunes, volcanic soil and rock fissures. It can handle very dry climates, frost and strong winds.
  11. 11. MELOJO (Quercus pyrenaica Willd.) The horn is usually presented melojo a sapling, but can be a tree of medium height and broad crown. Has highly developed the ability to sprout from the roots surface. The leaves are deciduous and are split in 4 to 8 pairs of deep, irregular lobes. Has its flowering in May or June, and acorns, bitter taste, ripen in autumn, as the gall, also may have guts. This oak is well adapted to continental climates, frost and drought enduring. It is located mainly on the slopes and foothills siliceous, between 400 and 1,500 meters.
  12. 12. "Each generation takes the Earth as trustees. We ought to bequeath to posterity as many forests and orchards as we have exhausted and consumed." J. Sterling Morton "The forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for sustenance and extends generously the products of its life and activity, and offers protection to all beings." Buddhist Sutra "Plant trees. They give us two of the most crucial elements for our survival: oxygen and books." A. Whitney Brown
