Field Notes
The date was 11/29 it was cold outside. We could see trees, we hear snow falling on the ground, and we smelled pizza. We were happy because we went outside. Problems we ran into: it was icy and cold and wet. We did not find it we where surprised.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
The pine needles of the American Larch are a green-bluish color, and the pine needles on this tree are just green.
Photo of my evidence.
The size of a American Larch is about 24m tall, and this tree looked taller then 24m tall.
The bark on the American Larch is scaly and is a reddish-brown color, and is hard wood because it's found in low-land areas, and we found this tree in a up-land area, but the tree bark we found was smooth and was plain brown.

You made some great observations, but I'm not so sure about the ID. The needles look more like those from a white pine than an American larch.

We think it is white pine to but we weren't shore.

Also, sorry just realized you said NOT FOUND for the American larch.

thank you for the info it sounds like some thing i will like

Yeah it can be hard to tell. Here's a link to the species ID card for White Pine. Check it out and see how it compares to your observations.
