[a.k.a. Norway Pine]
A long-needled fast growing pine, Red Pine plug seedlings reach heights of up to 120 feet, with a bare trunk reaching over halfway up the tree at maturity. This bare trunk is a result of this species’ tendency to self-prune lower branches, making it a poor choice for privacy but excellent for lumber production. The needles are up to 6 inches long, making for a very tall tree with a “crown” of branches and needles at the top.FOR SALE, shipping March 11 through May 28, 2024

This species of pine is named after its distinctively red bark coloring, although the bark is more gray at the base and becomes increasingly red as you look upwards. Pinus resinosa are often planted for forest and wildlife habitat, and are common in most Northern States. Its swiss-army-knife adaptability means this species is often added to a evergreen plug seedling variety pack if you aren’t sure what species is best for your planting area and needs.

Red Pine seed germination often requires fire to naturally eliminate other plants which might compete for resources, while also preparing the ground for germination. Found growing in sandy soils and rocky terrain, Red Pine plug seedlings adapt well to very poor soil and can live as long as 400 years. It does not tolerate shade, but does tolerate high winds, drier soils, moderate drought, and is naturally resistant to most common needle blights [such as Dothistroma].Plant In Record Time:
