Female: The distinct of evergreenm, white pine is a familiar site to anyone who lives in the eastern part of the country. It was so important that it was pictured on the first flag of the New England Colonies. It can grow to heights of one hundred and fifty feet. To remember this tree, think of the number five, it has five needles to a bundle and has five times more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of lemons. White pine tea is usually the first tea that youth groups make on overnight camp outs because it’s available all year round and it’s simple to brew. Pour two cups boiling water over handful of needles and steam for 15 minutes. Be sure to place a cover over to avoid dissipating the volatile vitamin C, remove the needles, add a bit of sweetener and you can say, you’ve eaten a tree.
