Maybe so. Climate might also have something to do with it. Here's a fall picture of Mount Monadnock (NH) at just 3100ft which also pokes above the treeline. You can see a garland of evergreen below the bald top which is mostly spruce but also long needle pine lower down with a lot of deciduous mixed in.

Comparison:

List of New England Hundred Highest --

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...undred_Highest

(Not seeing Massachusetts on the list: had to go out of state to find a mountain?...)...


California’s 100 Highest Mountains --


http://www.vulgarianramblers.org/ca_100.php


Hmm, California's 100th highest mountain is nearly 7,000 feet higher than New England's highest peak ...
