Identify all three. State the differences or how you ID them...

I would ask that question in Forestry B/C thread, they tend to talk about that a lot. :)

1. Florida Yew (Taxus floridana)
2. Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum)
3. Florida Torreya (Torreya taxifolia)
Baldcypress has the longest compound leaf thingy (is there a term for that?).  The needles on the Florida Torreya are more pointed than the Florida Yew's needles.

1. Coast Redwood 2. Baldcypress 3. Pacific Yew
I'm not really sure how to describe their differences, they're just all sort of distinct and unique....I guess baldcypress needles are smaller and wispy-ish (if that even qualifies as an ID characteristic  :? ) and the yew's needles sort of stick out more and are thicker...Coast redwood has the most "even" rows of needles.
*Edit: About ID: but if you have the fruit/cones, it's easy then :)

I apologize in advance for the gigantic picture:
Image
1. ID with the Scientific Name.
2. What characteristic(s) makes this tree a popular Christmas tree?
3. Why is this tree vulnerable to fire damage?
