White Pine Seedling Plugs
(a.k.a. Eastern 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.
PLEASE NOTE that the root plug of this specific plug seedling is slightly larger in diameter than our other plug seedlings, and the drill planting method will require a 1.5" drill bit, or some back and forth wiggling around of a 1" drill bit to create a large enough hole.
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 cordless drill, an old 1 inch drill bit and a few simple items, you can realistically plant upwards of 100 plug seedlings in an hour. Your back will thank us later :)
