THE MANY LONG LEAFED ("NEEDLED") PINES IN NORTH CAROLINA
I have been doing my best to become a better "tree identifier" during my time down here in the Outer Banks. The most numerous pines are what you see here. They have needles that are from 8 to 11 inches and many nearly six inch cones. They grow, as do the Loblolly Pines to up to 110 feet. (I learned that the Loblolly Pine is not too frequent here in the Outer Banks, But in my trips to the home of my friend Evelyn Dabbs near Florence SC there are many, many Loblolly Pines there.
