If you position yourself right in the Smokies and squint you can see five species of pines, hemlock, spruce, fir, and juniper at the same time... Usually six species is all that can be seen in the immediate vicinity (Pinus strobus, echinata, rigida, virginiana, pungens and Tsuga canadensis) but that is rare indeed!
