Beautiful Old Pitch Pine Barry Caselli
April 20, 2009

On Sunday after work I was out photographing churches. This church was on my list. I had been there before, but didn't remember that it had trees in front of it. It turned out that it has a beautiful old Pitch Pine in front of it, along with a nice American Holly. The Pitch Pine was quite big, with an estimated CBH of between 5' and 5'5", maybe a tad bigger. So the tree obscured my view of the church, but it was beautiful in its own right, which was a bonus.
Here's the 3/4 right front view of the church that I wanted to take, which turned out to be more of a picture of trees than a church! I was able to get the church by standing in other places. So it all worked out.
Oh, and this is located in Franklin Township, Gloucester County. Unfortunately large housing developments are starting to spread through much of this township, as in many others in Gloucester County. It's such a shame. It's real pretty right there. Directly across the street from the church, a large field has had a huge house built in the back of it, and the entire field is being converted into a lawn. What a waste. Anyway, I didn't mean to turn this into a rant.

Enjoy the photo.
