How is a seed cone pollinated and fertilized?
First, The scales on the cone spread apart to create openings. The ovules are located on the top, sides of the openings. The openings allow pollen to come in.

Wings help the seeds land on the ground.
What is the importance of the cork layer as a tree prepars for winter?
Trees grow a wall of cork cells between the twig and base of each leaf stem. This layer blocks the flow of water and minerals into the leaf.
