I don't know what kind of tree it is, but I like your photos times 3.Great stuff Tom!
With the wind we've had this past week, I've been picking up those darn things all over the backyard. Otherwise, if I run over one with the mower it makes a horrible sound.We've been having rain the past couple of days. I will be glad to see the sun.
To begin with I would not call the tree a pine. In Canada pin trees have long needles in clusters of two or five depending on the variety.The cones are great looking.The needle arrangement and length on this tree is more like what we call a Spruce. I would be interested to know what name it has for comparison purposes.
I did a little checking. It is not a Scots Pine which is the only native species of pine in Britain. The tree is a foreigner. Could be anything from anywhere you Brits go around over the years.
Hi Philip... I think you are right... this is on the edge of a park... it is the only one there. the cones are very big... over 6 inches and very delicate... every time the wind blows bits came off them.
My first thought was hemlock, but after googling both spruce and hemlock cones, I agree with Tossing Pebbles that you have a variety of spruce there. Good shots!
Color and technique.Beautiful shots.Luiz Ramos
Wonderful photos Tom. It looks like a version of a spruce tree. If you grab a branch and the needles hurt it is probably a spruce. We have spruce, hemlock and Cedar here in our part of the world and you are at a similar latitude so I wouldn't be surprised if that is what it is...cones look much like ours.Have a great weekend.Smiles
Lovely vibrant colors created by mother nature! Great shots!- Pixellicious Photos
