The Story

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!

The Details

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.
