    The Chestnut Oak is your average forest tree that is cut down and sold for lumber. The only non-average thing about this tree are the sweet acorns that grow on it, and are noticed for their beautiful look.

    The Yellow Birch is often called the most useful of the native birches because it is use to create many types of furniture. It gets its name from its yellow-bronze bark. It also has a large part in the forests ecosystem with many organisms living in the tree, and feeding on the tree.

    The Eastern White pine is a pretty useful tree. It can be used to revegetate mine spoils and is one of the very common trees in creating furniture. Also, it is found from as far south as Mexico, to as far north as Maine, and in a variety of climates and habitats. It is called a white pine, because of the white blister rust on the tree.

    Looking at the Mountain Maple, it isn't very significant. It is a very generic tree that is quite common, and there isn't any part of it that is interesting to me.

    @Nick Shelzi: After reading this article and looking at some images of the Japanese Black Pine, I think that this tree is very interesting. It can grow to almost 100 feet in its natural range. The seed cones on the tree are also very interesting in design. It has a white-yellow color with red dots.
