I hear many of the Krumholtz trees on Vermont's high peaks are black spruce rather than red spruce. I can't tell the difference yet, and am not sure if anyone could based on these photos... if no one can verify I'll just classify it as Picea later.

I was hoping I'd found some black spruce... but they were so stunted, I wasn't really sure...
