The Story

The mighty White Pine, the largest tree in the Northeastern U.S., was called at one time the “Tree of Peace” by the Iroquois people, after they had changed their warring ways.  When Europeans landed on the continent, however, the White Pine became a Tree of War.  The massive, long boles (trunks) were felled for use as masts on English Navy ships.  It’s hard to believe this half-pint plant is the same species as those hulking giants, but they carry basically the same DNA.  The origins of this variation are disputed.  It may go back to 1855.

The Details

Who can resist the classic long, soft-textured needles of the Eastern White Pine? The Dwarf Eastern White Pine is a smaller shrub with a compact, rounded growth habit. As it matures it will grow wider than tall. The soft needles are light green to bluish-green in color. Never thought you could fit a White Pine in your garden? Get all of the classic characteristics in this small package!

How to Grow

White Pine is easy to grow, especially in mild-summer regions of the U.S.  It likes full sun, but is somewhat shade tolerant.  White Pine insists upon sharp drainage—plants getting too much water will turn yellowish-green, then yellow, before checking out.  Don’t confuse that with the normal yearly yellowing and needle-drop of some of the interior foliage.  Although the straight species is known for being a fast-growing tree, this dwarf version is super-slow.  It may put on only a few inches per year.
