Pollen transport in flowers

Pollination is the transfer of pollen containing male sex cells from the stamens of a plant to the pistil containing the eggs. Afterward a pollen tube grows through the pistil and sperm nuclei migrate to the egg where fertilization (union) takes place. The seed then develops.

Pollen transport in trees

Please help me on this question.
thank you very much.

    It can be the same, although on many trees pollen serves as the mover of the pollen. Typically, fruit trees need insects to move the pollen, and genus Pinus needs wind. In my area, wind pollinates oak, pine, elm. Some nut trees (almond comes to mind) bees play an important part, others (pecan) depend on wind.
