Pinus resinosa

The Red Pine is also called the Norway Pine. The bark is reddish brown while the wood has a pale red pigment. The dark green needles are soft and flexible. When bent sharply they snap or break cleanly rather than just folding over as needles of other pines. They are unable to tolerate urban conditions or shading by other tree species.
