species-operophtera-spp-was-not-found-mrfrost-2014-12-15 MrFrost Deer Isle 2014-12-15 14:32:00 winter moth Operophtera spp. I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/mrfrost/img_1524_0.jpg sites/default/files/mrfrost/img_1520.jpg Deer Isle - Stonington Elementary School sites/default/files/species_photos/winter_moth_reference_photo_101912.jpg sites/default/files/mrfrost/img_1519.jpg We think we did not find the Winter Moth because we looked at maple trees and we did not see any small, grayish-brown moths with a one inch wingspan . The maple tree we examined was about 50 feet tall with a Diameter Breast Height of 12. We are investigating whether or not the Winter Moth was in a patch of woods on the Deer Isle Stonington Elementary School campus. We were in a predominantly hardwoods forest south of the soccer field on the DISES campus. The weather was 30 degrees Fahrenheit, wind 14mphNE and the sky was partly cloudy with cumulus clouds. One half the sky was covered with clouds.
species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-roshe-2014-11-19 Roshe Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/roshe/image_5.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_8.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_9.jpg The leaves were old but they had the same features that the did before. sites/default/files/roshe/image_10.jpg The berries had a red orangish color on them. The leaves were white and dying. sites/default/files/roshe/image_11.jpg The berries were very small. They were located off the branches. We found the plant this time unlike last time. We saw red and orange berries so we knew it was our plant. We heard people talking in their groups and we smelt the fresh air. I am surprised that we found it this time because it didn't seem like the type year you'd find it in, considering it usually blossoms in early spring.
species-betula-papyrifera-was-found-smarties-2014-11-19 The Smarties Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Paper birch Betula papyrifera I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_smarties/image.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_11.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/708.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_12.jpg The bark is white sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_13.jpg The branches are bare but there are leaves on the ground. sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_14.jpg The bark peels off. I see trees, leaves, people and plants.
species-fallopia-japonica-was-not-found-zeendrew-2014-11-19 Zeendrew Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Japanese knotweed Fallopia japonica I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_4.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_7.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/210.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_8.jpg We did not find it anywhere we looked and we looked around the woods and through the woods around our school. sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_10.jpg There was a lot of ice everywhere so it would probably be dead by now sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_9.jpg We looked near the water but didn't find it. Also along a stone wall but they didn't find it. They look like them far away but they are not. There is an old barn near the school and I am looking up around the field. We used a quadrat. There was ice everywhere so the species we chose would probably be dead by now. We didn't find the species we looked around the area it would be in and it was no where to be found. We also looked near waters but did not find it.
species-taxus-canadensis-was-found-men-top-hats-2014-11-19 The Men In Top Hats Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Canadian yew Taxus canadensis I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_6.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_8.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/721.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_9.jpg The needles are evergreen and are one to two centimeters long. There were a very little amount of possibly Canadian Yew. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_10.jpg When we found it, it was off the dirt trail and more in the middle of the woods and not near any water. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_11.jpg The needles are alternately laid out on the stem and were very smooth to the touch. We see trees and snow. We hear leaves rustling in the wind. We are COLD. We found what we think is American Yew was off the trail and not around any body of water.
species-rhamnus-cathartica-was-found-cleanup-crew-2014-11-19 The Cleanup Crew Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Common buckthorn Rhamnus cathartica I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_2.jpg sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_1.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/205.jpg sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_3.jpg It was discribed to have bumbs and the tree we found had bumbs on it and we could see we're the thorns would stick out in the summer. sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_4.jpg It is a small thin tree with thorns on it. sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_5.jpg It looks like they grow it groups and they all grow to about the same size.
species-pinus-resinosa-was-not-found-pink-fluffy-monsters-2014-11-19 Pink Fluffy Monsters Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 red pine Pinus resinosa I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_1.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_3.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/red_pine_bark.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_4.jpg The bark was not flakey as red pine. sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_9.jpg The needles were shorter than the red pine. sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_10.jpg There were no pine cones on the tree we found. I am happy because even thought we didn't find the species we were looking for we found a similar one. The problems we ran into were there were a lot of trees that looked very similar and that we didn't find our specis. Questions that we had were why we didn't find our species because we have many around our homes and we live close to the school. During the observations I notice that I saw lots of trees, I heard the wind and the rustling of leaves, and I smelled pine, and grass. We were very surprised when we didn't find our organism because we see a lot of these trees around.
species-prunus-virginiana-was-not-found-titans-2014-11-19 Titans Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Chokecherry Prunus virginiana I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/titans/image_5.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_12.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/716.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_13.jpg I'm surprised we found something similar. sites/default/files/titans/image_14.jpg The leaves we found are between 2-10cm which are sapposed to be the length of the leaf in the Chokecherry, but it's not the leaf. We are happy because we found something close to the Choke Cherry.
species-pinus-strobus-was-found-carebears-2014-11-19 Carebears Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 White pine Pinus strobus I think I found it Native sites/default/files/carebears/image_4.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_7.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/700.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_2.jpg The pine needles were 5-8 centimeter long and were a bright green. They grew in clumps, but for viewing purposes we just used one. sites/default/files/carebears/image_3.jpg The pine cone was 9 1/2 centimeters long and was found in the lower branches of the bigger tree. sites/default/files/carebears/image_16.jpg Pieces of the bark matched the ID Card. This tree also appeared to still be growing. We are happy because we found the white pine very quickly. During our study we saw two white pine trees together. We heard the leaves rustling in the wind. We could smell the sap from the trees. Our group we surprised that we did find more pine cones on the tree.
species-cornus-sericea-was-found-hairy-maple-leaves-2014-11-19 The Hairy Maple Leaves Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Redtwig dogwood Cornus sericea I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_0.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_11.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/cornus_sericea.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_8.jpg We think that might be red twig dogwood. We thinks this because of the color of the stem. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_9.jpg The stem of the red twig dogwood is one half inch thick. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_10.jpg This shows what we think is the redtwig dogwood. We happy because we got to get out of school to do this. The problem that we ran into was that we couldn't find the tree. We did see a lot of trees, we can hear kids laughing, and can smell fresh air. We are surprised that we didn't find it because we thought we would find some.
species-tsuga-canadensis-was-not-found-cuttlefish-2014-11-19 Cuttlefish Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Eastern hemlock Tsuga canadensis I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_7.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_9.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/703.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_10.jpg There are no trees in our quadrat. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_11.jpg There is only a dead bush and leaves. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_12.jpg None of the organisms in our quadrat had needles. We could hear the trees rustling in the wind. It was very sunny and very cold. We saw a lot of dead trees and other dead plants. I am a little bit surprised that we did not find it, I thought that we would find at least one Eastern Hemlock.
species-pinus-strobus-was-found-jjns-2014-11-19 JJNS Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 White pine Pinus strobus I think I found it Native sites/default/files/jjns/image_1.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_14.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/700.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_11.jpg We believe its a white pine. The bark looks the same. It's greyish green. sites/default/files/jjns/image_12.jpg The pine needles at the top are white pine needles. sites/default/files/jjns/image_13.jpg It has seasonal changes because their is little to no needles left on the tree. I am happy because we found the tree easily. I see a tree. I smell nothing. I hear the crunching of dead leaves.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-chair-2014-11-18 Team chair Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0159.jpg sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0159_1.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0157.jpg This a picture of the bark of a red pine tree. sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0159_0.jpg This picture shows the top half of a red pine tree. sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0158.jpg This shows that bugs have been eating this red pine tree. My class, Mrs. O'brein and all went outside to look for red pine trees. We found one red pine tree(RPT) in front of our school. We found one jack pine and twelve white pine trees in the process. After that we all went back inside to put more clothes on. Then we headed back out side to look for more. We found six more RPT. Four RPT are near/on the playground which has fence around it. One RPT is on the outside of the fence. Three more are near the swing set all line in a row.Two more are near the McGraw school. My class is happy because we did found red pine trees.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-whiteout-2014-11-18 Team whiteout Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_whiteout/img_0006.jpg sites/default/files/team_whiteout/team_whiteout_scan.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_whiteout/img_0006_0.jpg (Middle Tree) This is a piece of evidence because the tree looks healthy and there are no reddish orangish branches around the base of the tree. sites/default/files/team_whiteout/img_0007.jpg We know this is a red pine tree because it has a longer sort of needle and also because the needles come in bunches of two. Another reason is the pinecone is small and round. This doesn't have red pine scale because there is no cotton around the base of the needles. sites/default/files/team_whiteout/img_0004.jpg This is a red pine tree because it has red bark. This doesn't have red pine scale because there is no cotton around the bark. We're happy because we found a good red pine tree and got three good pictures. We didn't get the right pictures at first and didn't get as many pictures as we wanted. We saw many white pine and at first no red pine. We smelled sap. We are surprised because we found so many red pine trees so fast.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-book-2014-11-18 Team book Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_book/book_scan_0.jpg sites/default/files/team_book/img_20141119_141501_399_1.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_book/img_20141119_141408_575_0.jpg In this photo we took a picture of a red pine and we have our school in the background so you can kind of see the location. sites/default/files/team_book/img_20141119_141501_399_0.jpg This picture is the same tree, just a close up picture to its stump. We did not find the red pine scale in this or on this tree. sites/default/files/team_book/img_20141119_141745_809_0.jpg In this picture we took a picture of a pine needle and compared it to my glove and we put it in snow so you could see it better {no pine scale found}. We were both absent the day our class went out to look at the tree. We went out a day later. It was really chilly out there. We did not find red pine scale. We took pictures of a pinecone and a pine needle.
species-pinus-resinosa-was-found-team-pencil-2014-11-18 Team pencil Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 red pine Pinus resinosa I think I found it Native sites/default/files/team_pencil/img_0159.jpg sites/default/files/team_pencil/img_0019_0.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/red_pine_bark.jpg sites/default/files/team_pencil/img_0020_1.jpg We found the red pine tree, there was two needles in each bundle. sites/default/files/team_pencil/img_0174_1.jpg We found the red pine tree, there was red flakey bark on the tree. sites/default/files/team_pencil/img_0020_2.jpg We found the red pine tree, the needles are longer than then the other pine trees. Our class went outside to go find the red pine scale and red pine trees. It was freezing outside on November 18, 2014. We were not successful in finding the red pine scale, but we did find some red pine trees. We had to go back inside because we were so cold out there. We went back outside and we went back to work. There were also White Pines and some Jack Pines. We found some cool trees and some cool pine cones. We learned a lot about the pine trees.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-found-team-paperclip-2014-11-18 Team paperclip Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/team_paperclip/img_0010.jpg sites/default/files/team_paperclip/img_0017_0.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_paperclip/img_0024.jpg Our evidence that we found the Red Pine Scale is our picture. We found white fluffy stuff and the surface that the white fluffy stuff was on was red bark in the upper right hand corner. sites/default/files/team_paperclip/img_0011.jpg Our evidence that we found Red Pine Scale is the diagram we drew of our school, playground, McGraw school, the park next to our school, and a bunch of trees. We also have proof if you look at the pictures we took. We took a picture of this tree far away. sites/default/files/team_paperclip/img_0012.jpg Our evidence of finding Red Pine Scale at our school is our diagram, our pictures, and our field notes. We took field notes of the things we saw, heard,and felt. We heard the wind in are ears. When we were feeling the bark on the tree, it felt rough and cold. We smelled the damp bark and the dew on the ground. We saw white cotton ball like substances on this tree.We also felt the smooth pine needles. Our class went outside around our school to search for the Red Pine Scale. The air was freezing. On 11/18/14 our group thinks we were successful at finding red pine scale evidence is in the pictures also in our diagram. The tree we used was next to the playground. On the tree, there was little white teeth colored spots, that looked a little like mashed tiny bugs. There was also red bark on the tree, and regular bark peeling off. The red pine scale kind-of looked like whitish-grayish mold.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-waterbottle-2014-11-18 Team waterbottle Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_waterbottle/img_0008_1.jpg sites/default/files/team_waterbottle/img_0017.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_waterbottle/img_0007.jpg The red in the bark shows a red pine tree. Also, there was no white or sores on the tree bark or no white rings on the branches. sites/default/files/team_waterbottle/img_0018.jpg The needles come in pairs of two. These came right from the needle cluster.The cluster was on the tree and not a lot of dead needles in the tree. sites/default/files/team_waterbottle/img_0019.jpg The needles are 10 centimeters long. The range is 12-16 centimeters. We know it was a red pine but not sure why the needles are 10 centimeters. Our guess is its still growing. Today my class and I went outside looking for red pines to see if there was red pine scale. Hopefully not. It was bitterly cold. We found 7 red pines. How we knew it was a red pine was by the needles of 2. I wonder if red pines grow in groups or near each other? We saw a lot of different types of pines. Also a lot of dead needles near the ground by the trunk. But we don't think we found red pine scale.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-tape-2014-11-18 Team tape Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_tape/img_0011.jpg sites/default/files/team_tape/img_0011_3.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_tape/img_0011_2.jpg I didn't find any scale. I don't think I found scale because of the weather which is my theory. sites/default/files/team_tape/img_0012_1.jpg This photo shows that there is no scale. sites/default/files/team_tape/img_0012_2.jpg We thought that some moss was scale but figured out it wasn't. Jude and I went out to find Red Pines,we found 7 Red Pines. Jude and I looked at a tree in front of the other school McGraw, it was a really big R-Pine. It was cold out. But not as much as when we were in front of the school. But anyway. We got some good pictures as evidence. We did not see any scale on the tree.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-rubberband-2014-11-18 Team rubberband Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_rubberband/img_0175.jpg sites/default/files/team_rubberband/img_0175_0.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_rubberband/img_0174_0.jpg There was no fuzz on the bark. sites/default/files/team_rubberband/img_0177_0.jpg There were two needles in one bunch and the needles were 12 cm long. sites/default/files/team_rubberband/img_0175_1.jpg This is a far away view of our tree and this shows that it was heathy. We walked in front of our school and we found one red pine but it did not have red pine scale. Next, we walked out behind our school. We found one more red pine tree. We saw no evidence of the red pine scale. Then we went to the back of the primary school and on the playground. We saw four more red pines. In all, we found six red pines and we saw no evidence of red pine scale. They appeared to be very heathy.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-stapler-2014-11-18 Team Stapler Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_stapler/img_0072.jpg sites/default/files/team_stapler/img_0072_1.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_stapler/img_0067.jpg This is the bark of the tree that we looked at. As you can see that we did not find red pine scale. We believe we didn't find the red pine scale because our tree looked liked it had no white fuzz and our tree looked like it was in good health. sites/default/files/team_stapler/img_0070.jpg This is the photo of our pine needle, later I got a full branch and looked very carefully and found no sign of red pine scale. The needles were 12cm long and there were two needles in a bunch. This made us believe it was a red pine. sites/default/files/team_stapler/img_0072_0.jpg This photo of our entire tree. Once we took this photo we could tell that this tree was red pine scale free, there was no evidence of red pine scale. Our class went in the front, back, and the playground of our school. We found a lot of white pine, one jack pine and four red pines. We're glad that we found as many red pines as we did because we didn't think that we would find many. We were glad that we didn't find any red pine scale.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-pen-2014-11-18 Team Pen Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_pen/img_0050.jpg sites/default/files/team_pen/img_0053_1.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me. Trail and Campus sites/default/files/species_photos/rps_ref.jpg sites/default/files/team_pen/img_0049_0.jpg We searched around the tree and we saw no signs of red pine scale. If we did we would have taken a close up of it. Good thing we didn't find red pine scale. sites/default/files/team_pen/img_0053_0.jpg We saw the red pine but didn't see the red pine scale. We counted the needles. That's how we know that it's a red pine. We saw 2 needles They are long. sites/default/files/team_pen/img_0050_0.jpg From far away we saw nothing close to red pine scale affecting the tree. We found 7 red pines. We found white pine. We also found jack pine. This is the diagram that we drew. We went over with sharpie so that you can see it better.

It had tiny pine cones. Like hemlock. sites/default/files/54jb21s/image_3.jpg It was not have white whool. It had white racing stripes on the bottom of the needles. Like hemlock. sites/default/files/54jb21s/image_4.jpg It did not have white whool. It had odd bark like hemlock. The day we went out was on November 14, 2014 it was 45 degrees out and the wind was not blowing it was sunney. We found hemlock with our group. We know it was hemlock because it was small and the needles had white racing stripes. Also the bark was brown/grey and it was cracked.
species-tsuga-canadensis-was-found-44jf9s-2014-11-17 44jf9s E. Waterboro 2014-11-17 15:02:00 Eastern hemlock Tsuga canadensis I think I found it Native sites/default/files/44jf9s/image.jpg sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_7.jpg red pine/pitch pine and hemlock/balsam fir on campus sites/default/files/species_photos/703.jpg sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_9.jpg This picture shows a suspicious looking tree's needles. These needles are just like those needles of a hemlock tree, which makes it likely that this is an eastern hemlock tree. These don't seem to be confused with any plant, due to their small nature, so finding this should be very easy. Notice the greenish color. This makes it even easier to find this. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_8.jpg This bark is very similar, if not identical to, that bark of a hemlock tree. This means that it is even more likely this is probably a hemlock tree! This looks very similar to red pine bark, but if it has more of a darker, grayer shade to it, rather than a reddish shade, it is probably a hemlock tree. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_6.jpg Finally, this close-up shot of some different needles on the same tree show that these pines have the same two white lines that every hemlock needle has. This can definitely prove that this is a hemlock tree! This whiteness on the back of the needles are pretty unique. Very little needles have this distinctive feature, which is why this is very easy to identify. The observation that we had in concern of hemlock trees and hemlock woolly adelgid occured in only one day, for we only observed our study site FOR one day. After preparing our supplies and journals for the journey, we walked outside, took a last-second preparation test, and we finally went to our study site, which was just barely in the school campus. During our search, we had the help of our science teacher, Mr. Parent, and a real scientist, Ms. Bien, to further identify which trees are the trees we were looking for. It took a while, but we eventually spotted a tree that we really suspected was a hemlock tree. We studied it, and after lots of observations, we decided it was actually hemlock. We also noticed that there was no signs of hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive cotton-type thing that grows on hemlock trees, and that means our study site has not hemlock woolly adelgid! After taking evidence photos to make sure this was it, we finally headed back to the science classroom, where we were further instructed...

The entire branch seems totally fine, with nothing suspicious on it whatsoever. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_1.jpg This photo shows a sample of the needles on the same hemlock tree. Like the bark, this has nothing suspicious on or near it. No bugs, no white stuff, no nothing! sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_2.jpg Finally, this photo shows a view of most of the tree. Like the previous two pictures, there is STILL no hemlock woolly adelgid, or any bugs that may mean there is.

This tree, and you can see, has redish bark also. This leads me to believe that this tree is, in fact, red pine. sites/default/files/64sc41s/image_5.jpg Another feature that can be found on red pine is the clusters of two. The needles are grouped in two on one cluster. Also, the needles are longer then, say, a pitch pines needles. They are also spaced out a bit. Considering this, we have concluded that it is red pine. We are trying to get people to find red pine and are starting with our school, so we went out on a drizzly day and found red pine along a path through the woods. We know it's red pine because it has the flaky reddish bark with two needles in a bunch.

Eastern Hemlock has 2 white racing stripes on the underside. Hemlock has needles year round.Older bark is brownish, scaly, and black. Look for flowers in the spring. Male flowers are small and yellow. Female flowers are small green cones, which develope into small brown cones. sites/default/files/44wf7s/image_11.jpg The bark is scaly and has a grayish brown color. This is commonly found on the eastern hemlock tree. sites/default/files/44wf7s/image_14.jpg The needles of eastern hemlock are green and have two white racing strips on the underside of the needles. And the needles are 1.5-2 cc long. We are looking for Eastern Hemlock. We did end up finding it when we searched the MMS campus. Why we are looking for eastern hemlock is because of the hemlock wooly adelgid we want to know were hemlock wooly adelgid is and were starting with our school campus.

The needles are flat, and tapering. On 11/13/14 we went outside to look for Helmlock on Massabesic ground. We found a Hemlock grove. On the west side of the school. It was sunny and it was 55 degrees out.
