Welcome!

Can you take some close-up photos of the needles? Try to find cones and take photos. Take photos of the tree bark also.

How many needles in a bunch? It looks like two.

Best guess without cones for comparison is Pinus resinosa - Red Pine.

You should always tell us where the plant is growing. We can only assume that it is in Saskatchewan, but that might be incorrect. I do see some snow...

If so, then I'd say this is likely Pinus banksiana - Jack Pine. You don't have too many choices to successfully grow pines that far north.

I think Pinus banksiana is a two-needle pine, which means two needles per bundle. In order to confirm this with your plant, you should snip off a branch and lay it down somewhere you can take clear closeup images that show how the needles are connected to the stem. I think I can see two needles per bundle in your last picture, but a much closer image would help others here.
