I think the two trees in this picture (between them is the view of the swamp) are willows. Am I right? I think it may be a Pacific Willow... They obviously are not fully grown

This plant was found along the Union Bay Natural Area path, it was along the water side and there were several of them. The stem is light green with dark brown notches where the leaf-like branches grew from. The branches were thin and light green, looked almost like a firework explosion. I have never seen a plant like this before and was struggling to locate it in my field guide. Any help is much appreciated.

This tree is well outside it's natural range (California coast) but it seems to be doing well.

This Western White Pine Pinus monticola is near my house. It has been diseased for several years and now is starting to be a hazard. I'll be sad to see it go, it is probably older than me.

I am not sure what killed it, I know one common disease is white pine blister rust.
