On the corner of 45th and Pine Street is this tree:

Closeup of
branches of a small spruce tree.  The clusters of fresh green needles
have small golden-brown covers on their ends.

The new tufts of needles grow out of the twigs with these little protective hats on them. Once the tufts are all the way out, the hats fall off.

Note that despite the location, this is not a pine, but a spruce. Spruce street is one block over.
