White Pine - Pinus strobes

This species is probably the most recognizable native evergreen. It can be found in many locations both in planted landscapes and growing naturally. White Pine can grow to 150 feet high and usually produces an open crown when standing alone. In groups they tend to stay somewhat pyramidal. As a forest tree it was prized for ship masts for sailing ships. Today the uses include furniture, doors, and other construction products. As a landscape tree it is used in parks, natural area, cemeteries and other large open spaces. The large mature size makes it impractical for small properties. White Pine tolerates many soils and is often used to reforest mine soils. The tree does not tolerate wet sites. The blue green color and soft needles make it very easy to identify.
