The botanical terms Monoecious and Dioecious are two distinct categories of plant based on their reproductive capabilities.
In this article, we will make the distinction between Monoecious And Dioecious trees and plants, and provide an A-Z reference identifying which trees sit within each group.
What are Monoecious And Dioecious Trees and Plants
Dioecious plants are self-sterile, meaning they require a male and female cultivar to successfully pollinate and produce flowers and thereafter seeds.
The male plants produce staminate flowers with male reproductive capacity, whilst females display pistillate flowers. It is estimated that 29%  of trees are dioecious.
The majority of plants shrubs and trees 43%  are in fact Monoecious (translated as single house), meaning that they are able to complete the entire reproductive process from within a single plant and do not require any form of pollination from another plant.
They carry both male and female flowers for self pollination. A critical consideration in horticulture and crop production
Winter squash is a great example of this dual function, where we can see thin stemmed male flowers as offshoots from the main vine stem, whilst the female flowers have thicker rounded flower stems. Once pollinated this thick stem swells and develops into a fruit. 
Monoecious plants have separate male and female flowers on the same plant
Polygamo-dioecious plants have either female and bisexual flowers or male and bisexual flowers on the same plant.
