For the old question, here's the answers (since no one posted, I guess it's safe to post answers, but I'll hide them just in case):
1. [i]Abies balsamea[/i] 2. It is sweet smelling, which makes it a popular Christmas tree 3. It is the least fire resistant of the firs; it's prone to fire because of its high resin content
For the new ID:
Jack Pine

The ID is correct... but the questions are incorrect. Would you like to try again? (or anyone, for that matter)
I'm sorry if the questions were poorly worded- let me know if I should post clarifications :)

Not sure about #2, but for #3 I believe it's commonly known as "popcorn disease".
