Eastern White Pine ~ Pinus strobus

This tree can be found about anywhere and everywhere around here. Soft, thin, needles clustered in bundles of 5 are a key characteristic of this tree. This species can be located in any of the woods around is actually the state tree of Maine (and Michigan). It's native to the northeastern US and Canada and is typically growing in forests and woodlands. This species sticks out to me because I always remember having a huge white pine right next to my parent's house growing up, more than twice the size of the house. Unfortunately, it had to be taken down because of the risk it posed to the house, but I'll always remember coming outside after storms and seeing branches snapped on our lawn!
