The pineplent split from the towerplent. It looks much like its ancestor, except its leaves are now needles to deal with the snow. It also has developed resin sap to protect its needles from the cold. Its trunk has a thick layer of insulated blubber-like tissue to keep it warm. Since it is a plent and breathes like one, its top nostril will let out warm clouds of breath. This gives them the nickname of "smoke trees".

Living Relatives (click to show/hide)

These are randomly selected, and organized from lowest to highest shared taxon. (This may correspond to similarity more than actual relation)

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
