14 Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus)

13 March

There is a huge specimen of this tree about 10 minutes walk away from where we found this specimen – but this one was small and had greenery that was close enought ot the ground to be photographed. Known to the Haudenosaunee first nation people as the “Tree of Peaceā€. very widespread in eastern north America – or was before early settlers cut millions of them down. Considered to be the tallest tree in eastern North America. In natural pre-colonial stands it is reported to have grown as tall as 70 m (230 ft) – this speciemn has a lot of growing ahead of it before it reaches those dimensions.
