Research reports Pitch pine Our research question is to find an invasive tree, and I picked Pitch Pine. We have gone outside so we could see how to identify our trees, do research, and learn about trees. We have went outside on october,7, 2013 at MMS parking lot in the afternoon. It was a hot, sunny, and humid day. We went outside and, after about 15 minutes we found a big Pitch Pine tree. I took photos, measured how long the needles were, and looked for pine cones but there were none. We guessed that there are no pine cones because the tree is so old that it cannot process any Pine Cones. 2013-11-15 63kk48 2
