Forest

Forest Valentine’s Day Greeting Card with an illustration, in various shades of green, of evergreen trees from the high latitudes.

Behind the trees is an impressionistic deep yellow circle with radiating rays. It represents the low setting sun. The whole scene is set against a pale yellow background. ¬†And the text reads ‘Be my valentine, my love for you is higher than the sun’

Higher Than The Sun

The ‘higher than the sun’ is a reference to the Primal Scream song of the same name. It’s an adaptation of the lines:

I’ve glimpsed I have tasted
Fantastical places
My soul’s an oasis
Higher than the sun
I’m higher than the sun

The pyramid shape says that these are evergreen trees. As to which species of tree they are, they could be a species of conifer. Some spruce and thuya species are conical. Or they could be hemlock, which is also pyramid shaped.

Whichever evergreen they are, their main characteristic is that they keep their foliage all year around. Having said that, they do lose their leaves; it is just that they don’t lose them all at once in winter. Instead they lose them a few here and a few there, never leaving a bare tree. I just imagined an experiment of watching an evergreen losing its leaves. The observer would track every leaf as it falls and see what pattern there might be in the way the leaves fall.

Evergreen Forest

Evergreens can survive in conditions that would defeat deciduous trees. For example, where the nutrient value of the soil is low, deciduous trees struggle. That is because a great part of of the nutrients are lost with the loss of the leaves in winter. And those nutrients have to be available to be absorbed to make new leaves. That is why evergreen grow further north and south of the equator, where soil is poorer quality.
