Red Pine

There are some very large Red Pine in the Gahagan Preserve. Follow the "orange trail" north of the cabin to visit some of the largest. Red Pine are often refered to as Norway Pine but they are not from Norway so go figure. The bark exhibits a reddish tone. If it is not too tall to reach the needles, you can tell the tree by its needle grouping - they are long needles in fascicles of two.
