Audubon® Eastern White Pine
In stock and ready to ship
The majestic Eastern White Pine is a large, fast-growing tree for spacious properties that makes one of the quickest and prettiest evergreen privacy screens you can buy. Let this wonderful native Pine’s fluffy clouds of soft, blue-green foliage absorb traffic noise and headlight glare, while filling your yard with the fresh, calming fragrance of Pine needles and the relaxing “whisper” of the wind through Pine trees. White Pines also provide food and shelter for countless species of birds and other wildlife. And to top it all off, unlike many fast-growing trees, White Pine is remarkably long-lived, so this legacy tree will not only please your household, but will enrich the lives of several generations to come.

Massive (200-foot) White Pines once covered the Northeast, but the usefulness of their wood brought about the near-total demise of these giants. Their long trunks (“boles”) were much in demand for sailing ship masts (and the British harvest of them hotly contested in the period leading up to the Revolutionary War). White Pines still thrive in the East, but today they serve peaceful purposes. The wood is used in framing houses and for paper pulp; young trees are grown for Christmas trees. And “pine tar” is the stuff still used famously by baseball players!
If you're looking for a fast growing evergreen, then look no further! The foliage consists of long, thin needles light green in color with a slightly bluish cast. Eastern White Pines produce light brown cones that mature in late summer. An ideal specimen tree for large areas.
How to Grow
Eastern White Pine prefers a cool-summer climate, like that found in its native haunts in New England, the Great Lakes States, and high elevations in the South. It’s easy to transplant, and makes a fast growing tree in youth, slowing down in old age. Each year’s new flush of growth radiates from around the same point on the trunk, creating a tiered effect. Lower tiers can be removed to create an open space underneath, or left in place to make for an easy—though rather sticky—climbing tree.
