Little red pine


Little red pine (Pinus resinosa)

This is much more the weather at hand. There is still beauty in the snow though! As long as the feeders are full, the birds are happy too.

I would like to grow a stately white pine but the air quality here is said to discourage and damage them... Papermill town..the air is everywhere...but notice lovely ones in the outlying little towns. believe it or not I think Jack Pine is wonderful...love the colour of the trunks in direct sunlight on a snappy winter day.

Lots of our evergreens here are dying off , too, as I believe the weather is increasingly too warm and the summers too dry for them. Having spent years in Northern Ontario, I love all the pines; the craggy silhoulettes of Jack Pine against the sky are beautiful! The reason I planted the red pine was to counterbalance the dying trees that edge my neighbours property on the south side. I like the birds to have the evergreens in the yard.

Ah, yes! Do you get snow in winter? It is less here than many places in Canada but we can still get buried pretty well occasionally. I prefer spring.... : )
