This tree covers a lot of Ocala National Forest in central Florida.  I recall seeing quite a bit growing in Florida's panhandle as well.  Today's tree is not Jack Pine.  The needles of this one are short but not as short as those of Jack Pine.  It does, like Jack Pine, have serotinous  cones.

Those that thought they knew this didnít know jack either.  I would have said Jack, except for the southern/Floridian nature of most trees of the day so far.

 I'll try to expand the range on the trees of the day some in the future.  That cone picture with the dark area near the edge has some significance in identifying this one.  WDH showed me that several years ago.

I don't believe I have ever seen one grow straight up . It is normal to grow at an angle , all the better to toast the cones! My favorite pine to saw.

Sand Pine (Pinus clausa) was 6-12 tree of the day.

 I apologize for not showing the other side of this leaf but it has pubescence.  Tree of the day for 6-13.  It can be found in most of the south east of the U.S.

Y'all got it.  Post Oak or Quercus stelatta.  It is one of the white oaks.

When we were looking at the last oak I happened across a good oak field guide;

Tree of the day for 6/14.  Most will recognize this one but an invasive insect is killing this species.

When you run out of TOTD locally, let me know.
