Long-Lived, Fast-Growing Pine Tree
The Eastern White Pine tree is a hardy evergreen that is long-lived and fast-growing. One would look spectacular as a specimen tree for your yard or even as a substantial hedge along the property line.
Your Eastern White Pine, Pinus strobus, is a magnificent pine tree extensively used throughout much of North America. When young, it presents an elegant, pyramidal form that matures to a more spacious, irregular crown with age.
Its 5-inch needles are soft to the touch and have a delicate bluish-green hue. The 8-inch long cones it produces are cylindrical in appearance, and your feathered friends will thank you for the seeds they provide.
Eastern White Pine trees will grow to 80 feet in height with a 40 foot spread. It’s a generally low-maintenance tree that can be left to grow naturally, or you can prune it back a bit if need be.
It’s tolerant of a variety of soils as well as deer and rabbits. Birds love it, and in fact wildlife in general will benefit from the shelter it provides.
Eastern White Pine is long-lived and a vigorous grower, so you can expect to see results quickly and enjoy your tree for a long time. When small, you could also use this tree as a Christmas tree, as many people enjoy this variety for just that purpose.
The Eastern White Pine is obviously an impressive evergreen with a lot to offer!
