4. Conifer Leaves

This is a photograph of a Hemlock tree. Hemlock trees have leaves that are classified as “Conifer Leaves”. As defined by the Webster dictionary, Conifer leaves are; “any of numerous, chiefly evergreen trees or shrubs of the class Coniferinae (or group Coniferales), including the pine, fir, spruce, andother cone-bearing trees and shrubs, and also the yews and theirallies that bear drupelike seeds. Hemlocks are classified as conifers because the definition of conifer leaves remains true in regards to Hemlock leaves.
