Pinus resinosa

Pine - Red

The Red Pine is a medium to large sized tree with long, soft, flexible needles and beautiful bark which turns red as it matures. This long-lived conifer is self-pruning, ultimately leaving the bottom portion of the trunk branch free. A favorite tree of the paper companies, they love its disease resistance and future as a pulp producer. Try this evergreen with other pines and spruces for a diversified windbreak.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
