Hint
'uncovered' is an indicator; it means: remove the "top". :cool:

Nope. Looks like yer wordplaying with the direct (unless you're thinking some sort of &lit, which it's not).

Hint: 'tar' is not a surface word (i.e., can't be ignored). :p

Last hint folks: Pine = direct

(which means synonym of tar "uncovered" = answer)
