Heb. tidhar, mentioned along with the fir-tree in Isa. 41:19; 60:13. This is probably the cypress; or it may be the stone-pine, which is common on the northern slopes of Lebanon. Some suppose that the elm, others that the oak, or holm, or ilex, is meant by the Hebrew word. In Neh. 8:15 the Revised Version has "wild olive" instead of "pine." (See FIR.)
Neither Santorum nor Gingrich has visited the pine tree State.
In November, Maine voters will vote on whether to ban using dogs, traps, and bait to hunt black bears in the pine tree State.
