Red Pine Tree
The Most Widely Planted Pine in America
In the 1930’s the Red Pine was planted all across the northern part of the U.S. and into Canada. It was prized then, like it is now, for its tall (up to 110 feet!) and super-straight trunks. Every telephone pole you see from New York to Seattle is made from Red Pine, just like they have been since the 30’s.
So, if you’re looking for a tall, straight, majestic tree that thrives in the North, Red Pine is the answer. Living for up to 300 years, this tree grows strong, survives harsh weather and is easy to care for.
Also called the Norway Pine, the Red Pine stands up to wind and snow like a champ. It self-prunes, so it drops dead branches as it grows. This means that it has a nice clean trunk as it grows older without excessive pruning needed on your part.
These are perfect trees for windbreaks on large properties or for a year-round green in hard winter places. All they need is a sunny spot and well-drained soil and they are good to go.
