Pine Trees

Pine Trees

They are the largest trees ever. They don’t get moisture from their roots, they get it from their leaves (their needles). They grow in the north and used to be on every continent.

Dinosaurs used to eat them and pterosaurs built nests in them.

They are the best smelling trees of all time.

The largest type of pine is a redwood. The largest pine ever was a redwood in a coastal forest in California. Its name was the Crannell Creek Giant. Its total volume was over 60,000 cubic feet. It was 308 feet tall. It was cut down in the 1940s.

Rest in peace, Crannell Creek Giant.

Rest in Peace

 

In Washington

In Washington

In Washington

Where the pine trees grow

And the river flows

In Washington.

Where the deer walk

And the birds sing

In Washington.

Where life is everywhere

And the sun glows

In Washington.
