A wilding pine.
The gradual logging of the wind-damaged Pinus radiata plantation below Dyers Pass. Also visible is the Ulex europaeus gorse in flower on the slope to the right.
I've put the location in the middle of the photo for NatureWatch NZ, but the photo was taken from the top of the water tank in Cracroft Reserve, Cashmere (the original photo on Flickr is geotagged at that location).
3-needle pine. didn't think it was P rad, but maybe it is! shelter belt
Probably planted but it wasn't certain.
Single sapling estimated to be five years old. Hand-pulled and removed from area for disposal back at Waitiki Landing. Wildling pines are fast becoming a serious threat to the North Cape Peninsula and especially the ultramafic belt. They are spreading across the Waikuku Flats tombolo from private pine plantations
This tree looks like pine tree, but not sure its common name. The needle leaves are hardy, and no fruit on the tree.
Seafield Park - adventure/adrenalin course!
This is the pine hedge next to the bolete fungi I photographed.
Nearest tree (a planted shelter belt) to a group of mushrooms I photographed.
The Monterey Pine, Pinus radiata, family Pinaceae, also known as the Insignis Pine or Radiata Pine is a species of pine native to the Central Coast of California and Mexico (Guadalupe Island and Cedros island).
