a nice suburban pine

Not a tall tree by any means just an unusually thick one for the region. I'm guessing white pine but am not familiar with the open grown form.

That's about as white pine as you can get.

Fully mature white pines are rare in these parts. I'm familiar with the tall and slender forest grown ones of western PA. I didn't realize they can get this girthy in their open form. The "heavy duty" trunk of this particular tree reminded me (to a much lesser extent) of the massive Sugar pines of Calavaras. I was pleasantly surprised.
