Pine Tree Crosses

The Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter If you look at the tops of the Pine trees two weeks before, you will see yellow shoots. As the days get closer to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a Cross. By the time Easter Sunday arrives, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow Crosses on the tallest shoots.
