You have so many nice new photos, Ryan! That's a pine, which grows wild more in higher regions in my country. But I have one in my garden, which I planted many years ago. Lovely photo, Ryan! May
Lovely shot Ryan! :D Pine cones are a very attractive looking subject.
Thanks May and Pam!
May do you recognize the tree? I think it's called a longleaf pine, with a tall branchless trunk, and a crown of branches and needles up very high. That was my best guess, but I thought maybe it could be a slash pine. I looked up all the conifers of Florida, and ruled out all the spruces and firs, and most of the pines. At any rate, they are definitely pinecones!
Ryan, I am pretty sure as well, that it is a Pinus, but I couldn't say which subgenus of the 112 kinds of pines alone. ;-) Just in case you haven't seen this site. Pity you haven't got a photo of the whole tree.
Yes, a pity. I find myself saying that a lot. I've tried to be better lately, to take pictures of the whole thing just for reference, even if I don't like the way it looks for whatever reason. I don't know why I didn't take any of the whole tree.
Thank you for the link, May. I would never try to narrow down from that list, but I had already checked a website (that has since been completely erased) that listed conifers specific to Florida. For now I will call it a longleaf pine. :)
That's a fine name and I know what you are talking about. :-)
