Tree ID

I was sleeping in botany class I guess. Can somebody tell me what the narrow pine trees are sticking up above the rest of the right side of this pic? Black Spruce?

There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig!

Of the three tall trees on the right side of the picture, I would agree that the one on the left is a black spruce. The other two probably are too, but the one on the right could also be balsam fir. Based on this one view alone it's not 100% clear.

One of my favorite tunes... Black Spruce.

I concur with the consensus here that they are more than likely Black Spruce, based on the irregular conical crowns, but I agree with Bill I. that a positive identification is difficult to make from this distance.

Yes. The crow's nest, the thick cluster of branches evident at tree top, and drooping branches with turned up tips, positively ID those trees as black spruce.
