Field Notes
We were at UMM on the nature trails. It was a misty day. We did a transect tree count. We ran an transect tape in the woods. We took a 6 meter string perpendicular to that line and ran it into the woods. We checked 1/2 meter on either side of the string.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
I did not find a white pine, but I did find a red pine. The bark of a red pine is smoother and looks to be a red color.

Comments

I agree, you have not found white pine and the bark does look like red pine. Red pine scale is a forest pest of concern in Maine. If you see other red pines when you are out in the woods, you may want to look at this Mission and see if you notice any signs of red pine scale.

Thanks for observing!
