The Pine Tree

In Canada, the Maple tree and the Pine tree are two of the most dominant and iconic trees. The White Pine (Pinus strobus) is a large pine tree that is native to Eastern North America.

The White Pines are credited as being North America’s tallest tree and there have been reports of trees reaching over 70m.

Pine cones are long and slender and contain seeds that provide animals with food and serve as the trees way to reproduce.

The Eastern White Pine is the provincial tree of Ontario and the state tree of Michigan and Maine.

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.
