I’m becoming fond of those straight pine trees

In Colonial times, the royal surveyor marked the biggest ones as the King’s Pine, reserved for the masts of the Royal Navy.

It created a lot of bitter resentment among the settlers who had to work around them.

Today, pines of that stature are largely a legend in a state that has been heavily logged over. But some, we can hope, are growing back.
