Re: Tree related questions for a quiz for ordinary people

Please do not give the legislators, health unit, municipal employees etc.
any more ideas.  We now have crusaders trying to remove nut trees from
schools (not common) and pollen sources.  The monkey bars and
merry-go-round were removed long ago.  With Covid we may see students in
plastic bubbles whenever they return to school.

As for a question about trees that I imagine only 5 people in the world
might know is:  What is the defining characteristic of a conifer?

Is this true?
Perhaps this could be shown to your (or Ontario's) legislators...

Sorry no playing in the school yard.  Conckers (as we called them) have
been banned for a long while here in Ontario, Canada school yards.

Further I imagine there is a virtual game on phones that kids would
rather
play.

Hello All,
I'm wanting to put together some questions for a family quiz in which
everyone else are not tree people or know much about trees.

Do you have any good tree related questions that I could use that are
not
too difficult and not too obscure please?

I want to give my relatives a fighting chance of getting at least a
couple
right, if not more.

Many thanks as always,

with regards
Bettina
