Thanks, I just noticed it today. It's not a pine because pine seedlings have clustered needles even at the seedling stage (I had to look that up). It's not a fir because they don't grow around here. So it must be a spruce and if so, it must be a white spruce since black spruces don't live around here either. At least that's my best guess.
I've never seen a spruceling this young before. Now that I know that it is there, I am going to do my best to protect it. I wonder if it will survive its first winter since it got started so late.
