We had a mysterious pine tree not too long ago, and here is another. There’s always a new pine species to learn about.
This one is growing in a small park not far from my house, in the Shandon area of Columbia, S.C., where I live. Here, it is a common native species, and can be seen just about all over town, and for that matter, just about anywhere else in South Carolina (mostly though, in the piedmont counties).
