Black spruce and cones (handsaw for scale)

Black spruce (Picea mariana) is the provincial tree of Newfoundland and Labrador. Seed cones are very hard when new, however fire (or high oven heat) will cause them to open quickly. Black spruce is not a large tree, but it is hardy, largely resistant to insects, and it grows on both wet and dry lands.
