View of a 14-year-old Scotch Pine (Pinus sylvestris) plantation at the Carthage watershed in Carthage, NY. Many cities planted pines as shade trees at their municipal reservoirs in order to deter the growth of algae in the water. This image was created to record the reforestation efforts of the New York State Conservation Department.
