New: “Pitch Pine”

Cape Cod is home to trees of all kinds. Some are fairly exclusive to the Cape, others pretty common. One of those common trees is the pitch pine. Not a beautiful species, but so commonplace, they’ve become known as Cape Pines. Most are dwarfed by wind, lack of soil, and salt air, and their tufts of pine needles and cones wreak havoc with lawns. They’re as easy to mark for cutting in your yard, as they are tagged to stay. In the right place, they seem to be an important part of the landscape. This cluster is on the Outer Cape, in Truro. sits on a grassy hill overlooking Cape Cod Bay. “Pitch Pine” 30 x 40
