All coniferous trees have two kinds of cones: seed cones and pollen cones. The seed cones are much more common to see, and provide the seeds that are such an important food source to squirrels and birds. The pollen cones are much smaller, and dry up in the spring as soon as they release their pollen All these cones release so much pollen that it can often be seen as a yellow haze blowing in the air, or a floating layer on the surface of ponds. Millions of microscopic pollen grains make up these clouds of pollen, and it is possible to determine what species of plant any pollen grain came from INFO COLLECTED FROM THE NET
