Thanks for the article. I really enjoyed it. I am saving it to my favorites for future reference. I wish the people who classify plants would stop switching them around as Sequoias, Coast Redwoods, Cryptomerias, Dawn Redwoods and Bald Cypresses all used to be in the Taxodiaceae family. I took three plant ID classes at a local community college and one of them was conifers. It is amazing how the families and names keep on changing.

It is hard enough for me to keep up with the plants I know well, but for those you mentioned that I don't, it is impossible.
