red pine (Pinus resinosa; PINE FAMILY [Pinaceae]) Tall (50-100') evergreen tree.  Needles in bundles of 2, 4-6" long.  Twigs yellowish changing to reddish-brown.  Mature bark forms irregular diamond-shaped scaly plates.  Cones 1-2" long and conical or ovoid.  Genetic uniformity and straight, rapid plantation growth make this a very widely planted timber tree.  [021]
