The Yellow Pine tree is a tree that is grown many times for its lumber which is used in construction. They are very fast growing trees and can grow more than 3 feet per year. The bark on these trees will take on an almost yellow appearance when they are mature plants. These trees are native to the southeastern portion of the United States. They are adaptable to various soil conditions but will grow their best in sandy or clay soils. They will need moisture and good drainage for their roots.

The yellow pine is a series of species mostly found in the Southern United States of America. Moreover, these species of plants include long leaf, shortleaf, slash pines in addition to loblolly. Of course, the yellow pine is relatively harder than pine wood. Additionally, the plants are relatively affordable since they are readily available in abundance. Over and above, in the nineteenth century, they were vastly used for different projects including the warming of homes. The same is correct about their current uses and applications. Following their combination alongside their durable nature, the yellow pines are a perfect choice for flooring, particularly when it comes to high traffic places. In the south, yellow pines often grow well in acidic clay soil. Furthermore, the young trees experience the ‘grass stage', where they remain in the ground until their taproots are fully developed. Also, they can produce a trunk in another decade alongside having an excellent triangular pattern perfectly developed. At maturity, yellow pines lose their branches while forming a rounded top coupled with a straight trunk of about 80 feet. Aside from that, yellow pines have a persistent striking length of 18 inches. As such, yellow pines are relatively easy to incorporate in different housing projects because they are easy to handle with machines. However, because they contain resin, the handler can experience difficulties especially if blades and sandpapers are involved. In addition, the resin can somewhat foster some challenges in gluing. Other than that, yellow pines hold nails alongside screwing them in well. Besides, they experience average shrinkage upon drying. For that reason, it requires tremendous drying prior to usage. Apart from that, yellow pines can easily be stained varnished and painted. When it comes to staining, a wood sealer is highly preferable for use. Conclusively, yellow pines have a preference for full sun in addition to well-drained soil. For those who would like to enjoy the comfort of warm homes, yellow pines seem like the perfect choice of interior decor materials.
