Eastern White Pine

It's time for a spot of color!

Here is the Eastern White Pine, Pinus strobus, the tallest tree in Eastern North America, with records of this creature reaching heights of 180 feet.

What we have here is a terminal bud on the lowest reaching branch of a nearby youngster. What's to be expected when collecting in the dark? With the weekend coming and weather permitting, I hope to stock up on specimens for later photos and research.
