Damaged White Pines

These white pines are located in Weld County, Colorado.  This white coloration on the pines is a result of the November cold snap.  The temperatures went from being in the 70's to below freezing in a matter of hours. Then in the next couple of days afterward came the minus wind chill, these plants had to endure.
