[a.k.a. Eastern White Pine, Northern White Pine]
Eastern White Pine are the kings of the Eastern forests and the tallest evergreen tree in North America. White Pine reach heights of up to 200 feet tall with a spread of up to 40 feet during a life span of easily 200 years. It’s long blue-green needles average 2 to 5 inches in length, and lower branches often fall away as it reaches maturity, leaving a tall bare trunk with a “crown” of branches at the top. It is also known as Northern White Pine or just White Pine.
White Pine prefer full sun and well drained soils, and so planting in light to dark sandy soils in open spaces is ideal. Their height, branching nature and seed type make them an ideal squirrel, chipmunk and bird shelter and food source. Birds of prey often nest in White Pine due to the high vantage point and the animals attracted by it’s seed.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant these evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen seedling. With just a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a jug or three of water, a cordless drill, any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around [your own drill bit, we do not provide a free auger with plug seedlings], you can realistically plant at least one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
