Does anyone ever stop thinking of trees?
I'm in idaho vacationing and I was planning on collecting trees. But its calling me. There are a bunch of self seeded junipers and pines under pine trees.
The main question I have is what type of pine is this? IMG_20130724_095018.jpg IMG_20130724_094955.jpg IMG_20130724_095034.jpg

Lateral Pines? Please excuse me but I have never heard of "Lateral Pine" what is its botanical name. I think these trees are probably Pinion Pine. Idaho is lousy with them. I spent a good deal of time last summer in that part of the country doing some family business. I do not remember running into an abundance of Ponderosa or Lodge Pole but Pinion were all over the place.

HUh ? C'mon I thought the stick out tongue emoticon would have clarified it was a joke, you see Lateral means extending from side to side ........ the first picture is sideways......

It always ruins a joke when you have to explain it to someone.

I will be back home tomorrow. I visited silverwood theme park and took a lot of landscape pictures of a ton of junipers maples willows and much more. Only if I had the permission and a 53'trailer.

The trunks are wrong for piñon (too straight and free of low branches, too rough and red) and the cones are too big and conical.

Well then I guess it's a mystery, you did not show the trunks and the growth looks like Pinion.
