Pinus strobus

Pine - White

The Eastern White Pine is a fast growing evergreen that is hardy and adaptable to many soil types. The needles are clustered, soft and blue-green in color which give this conifer a somewhat wispy look. Its buds are sticky and aromatic, and the tree gives off a very pleasant scent, especially after it rains. The bark on the Eastern White Pine is smooth and silvery when young but matures to a dark grayish brown with broad ridges and deep furrows as the tree ages. This selection is very popular in the home landscape, but is also regularly used by forestry companies for reforestation and other planting projects.

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