Pinus strobusFOUND by WhitePineF

We walked into the woods to the powerline road. It was very cold and wet out. It was rainy and no one wanted to be outside. We could hear people talking and laughing and the air smelled sappy. I was happy because we found the white pine and it was very hard to find. We are very surprised that we could not find it because the white pine was everywhere. I could see buildings and hear cars so we knew we were in a developed area.
I know that we found the white pine because the needles are between 5-13 cm. And there are 5 needles growing out of its fascicles. Also the needles are fine toothed. It was harder to find the needles because they were so high up. We found some that fell off the tree.
The bark was thin and reddish grayish color. It's got long ridges and dark furrows. We think this is a young tree because the bark was thin.
