Field Notes
It was a cold day in Fryeburg, Maine. It was snowing when we went outside but when we started to go in, it started to rain and snow really hard. All we could smell is the forest, all we could see is trees, all we could hear was the sound of the rain on the icy road. All we touched were tree branches and the needles from the tree.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
On the I.D card it said that the bark is a smooth, thin,gray-green color. On other trees the bark is thick,reddish to a grayish brown color.

We took off one of the fascicles and it had five needles and the I.D. card said that the needles were 5-13 cm long and they all were 6cm long and that is how we know we found it.

We found a pine cone and it was supposed to be 8-16cm and the pine cone was 10cm and that is good because it is in the range of the 8-16cm.

I think you found the White pine because of your field notes.

Those are some nice pics that you have there, though I think you could have made the pic of the needle and the pine cone a bit less fuzzy. But other than that those are nice pictures.

I like your how you took the pictures and I agree that you found the white pine.
