Scots pine

(Pinus sylvestris)

In the past, the roots of the pine would be set alight as a form of lamp commonly taken on fishing trips. The roots do not crackle when they burn which allows the fisherman to avoid unnecessary noise that would otherwise frighten away the fish. Pine resin that has lain in the earth for millions of years can eventually form amber.
