Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.
Coordinates completely hidden from public maps, true coordinates only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation. Observations with private coordinates will still be used to verify place check lists.
The needles are pointy. The tips of the branches are budding. The trunk is more knobbly and the whole tree is more gnarly than those I see farther inland (like those protected in forests), probably due to the constant beating it gets from the wind.
