When I searched it on google it was the second search that came up for "red pine leaves" so I naturally thought it would be an image of a red pine. However, after visiting this page: http://web.cortland.edu/broyles/tree%20guide.html (at the very bottom) I can see that it was actually an image of a White Pine. Sorry for any confusion, I should have realized that it wasn't a red pine :oops: .

I'll give this one to sophie2220.

Once again, I apologize for any confusion.

Haha, that's cool, it happens a lot! I type in the scientific name now, it usually comes up with more accurate images. And I think you mean *wasn't a red pine. :D
