    Hello everyone. I'm new to the forums so please be patient. I was walking the streets near Queen Elizabeth Park and took a few pictures of trees, can anyone identify them for me? I have the guess that they are probably Fir and Pine, etc. but not sure what type.
    The first two pics are of the same tree.
    Cheers
    Sonya

    #1-2 Blue Spruce Picea pungens.
    #3 probably European Black Pine Pinus nigra, but can't completely rule out a couple of other related pines. Can you find a cone from it? That would help identify it to species.

    Colorado spruce and Austrian pine very common in local plantings.

    Thanks Ron and Michael, I'm surprised these are not local trees.
