Thanks! Do you have any tips on identifying pines?
Well the first thing to know is how many needles in a bundle. then if you find the lengths of the needles and together that should seporate them pretty nicely. of course, there are more ways to tell them apart, but I would start with these first!
I've got those down. Any other suggestions?[/quote]
once you've established the number of needles, look for little things like twisted vs. not twisted, long vs. short, etc.[/quote]

What do you mean by twisted vs. not twisted?

A pine can have flat needles or really thin ones that twist, it is a good way to identify. also use colors and cones, if theres a cone in the picture and you know the cone then its easier then knowing the tree itself, but make the needles top priority

The main difference beteen the Rocky Mountain Juniper and the Utah Juniper is that the Utah has tanish seed cones, while the Rocky Mountains have buish or blue-blackish seed cones . Also, the Rocky Mountain Juniper can grow to be taller and is found more commonly. Otherwise, they do look pretty much the same when it comes to leaf shape, and I'm not sure about any of the others.
