Pine Pollen is created on the male organ of the pine tree, informally referred to as ‘catkins’. Pollen is developed in the yellow-colored male cones, informally referred to as ‘catkins’ and transferred via wind to the female ovule cone where fertilization and embryo development takes place within the seeds. Pines are wind-pollinated trees. Each pine pollen grain has two air sacs that function as "wings". The wind catches these wings and the pollen spreads by wind and gravity until is caught in a female pine cone (Ovulate).
The Canadian Pine Pollen Company has a mission to be the premier source of wild-harvested pine pollen.
