trees can be male or female or self-propagating

the trees themselves can be female. When I was a kid in summer nature lessons (we carried hatchets, chopped down trees, built leantos, learned to find pine torches and carry them lit in the forest-AAAH- childhood!!) they taught us to identify lots of different trees and plants and differentiate female ferns.

When I look in a nursery catalogue, there are male and female trees (buy 6 female to one male for some kinds, one male to two or three females in other species. Then there are the 'self-propagating or self-fruitful. I don't know if those are natural or something with male and female branches grafted onto the same trunk stock.

SO, maybe it's female TREES that will be the solution.

remember grandmother willow in Pocahantus (Disney)?
