[a.k.a. Eastern White Pine, Northern White Pine]
Eastern White Pine reach heights of up to 120 feet tall [rarely to 200ft], with a spread of up to 30 feet during a life span of easily 200 years. No wonder they are considered the kings of the Eastern forests and the tallest evergreen tree in North America!

White Pine feature long blue-green needles average 2 to 5 inches in length. Lower branches often fall away as it reaches maturity, leaving a tall bare trunk with a “crown” of branches at the top. White Pine is also known as Northern White Pine, Eastern White Pine or just White Pine.
White Pine plug seedlings prefer full sun and well drained soils, and so planting in light to dark sandy soils in open spaces is ideal. This species does well in mild to moderate drought once established with good deep root systems. 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 its seed.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen tree. With just a cordless drill, a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a 5 gallon bucket of water, and any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around, you can realistically plant one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
