I'm thinking a Pine but I hear the Moose has been around eating the bark off trees in our area.

Sorry Zap my small brain doesn't get it. I get the Moose part (I think) but not the Pine part. We ain't got no moose on LI .
Ohhh...we ain't got that either! Must be a tall one though.
They climb to eat!
Pretty small teeth marks if that helps you choose
Never see moose eating or stripping spruce here, alder & willow primary food here.
Pine smelling moose droppings around ? LOL
Porcupines are obnoxious. I tried to find a picture I thought I took of the holes they chewed through our box deer stands but I couldn't. They ate a good foot out of 1/2" plywood.
The tree being stripped is a Maple, most likely a porcupine doing it. Up the hill to the right we have a porcupine living in a big ole maple for the last four years.
little slow today, still digesting food.
Thought something eating pine trees LOL
Pork or Moose
Put a salt brick about 8 to 10 feet up in a dead tree, or cut a tall stump. as it rains the salt runs down the tree & critters gnaw on the tree.
If any moose around, bet they find it
I'd put the salt brick in a have a heart trap, then I wouldn't have a heart.
Between my dog, my beech trees, my few pine, and my HOUSE, I'm getting to hate porcupines. And that's from one who as a child asked my mother, "Can I pet the pretty pussy?"..which resulted in a quick moment with the gun on my Dad's part.
Seriously, the only thing that gets me more upset than the Porcupines girdling my beech, is to be in the house and hear the damn things gnawing on the basement windows...sounds like someone is taking a chainsaw to the house. And they keep it up, despite noise and the dog having fits, until you go chase or dispatch them.
I had a porkie eating on a nice hard maple, this one was clever and avoided my chances to give him lead poisioning. I think my trapper got him eventually. They can get out of hand fast in a loodlot and kill a lot of trees.
I have never seen moose eat the bark from large trees. I say Porcupine.
Porky, whack him!
That has to be one of the best paraprosdokians I have seen in a while.
I'm with BD and the others that said porcupine. too small of teeth marks IMO. Shoot the bugger and bury him in a shallow grave.......
He's a big bastard, I've seen him about four times going by. Just more wood we have to burn, looks like the Cherry in front of the Maple will need to come down.
My thought too! That's why I entered post #15
