Pine, Eastern White 2-0 (Pinus strobus)
Full sun to shade tolerant
Our 2-year-old eastern white pine reaches a mature size of 80 to 100 feet in height and 2 to 3 feet in diameter, but can reach 200 feet in height. The eastern white pine is the largest conifer in eastern North American. The wood is used for construction lumber, cabinet making, furniture and interior finish. White pines are also grown for Christmas trees and are planted to stabilize the soil on strip-mined lands. Commonly found on dry, sandy or rocky ridges, but grows best on moist, sandy loam soils. This conifer provides thermal cover in winter for many species of animals and birds.
