Can anyone inform me why the nursery trade separates "trees" from
"conifers". Is there logic in this classification? History?




 The 70s craze for dwarf/small conifers perhaps? Seems to be reflected
to some extent in public opinion with people often referring to really
magnificent Western Reds, Incense Cedars etc in derogatory tones.
Certainly to some, conifers are second class citizens of the tree world.
Not to me though.
