The White Pine Tree
The White Pine tree is an oval-shaped evergreen that is very fast growing and can reach up to 80 feet in height when mature. It is also known as the Eastern White Pine, and they can comfortably live to be over 250 years old. The most common use for this magnificent White Pine is like a Christmas tree. The bluish-green needles of this tree are usually 2-5 inches long, extremely flexible and grow in bundles of five. As this tree matures, it loses its branches on the lower half of its trunk. In late spring to early summer, the White Pine blooms with delicate pink and yellow flowers. This tree also produces deep brown cones that can range from 6 to 8 inches long. The White Pine is the preferred nesting sites for such birds as the woodpeckers, doves, grackles, and chickadees. The pine seeds are now to attract wildlife from the Red Crossbill bird to the black bear. This hardy tree is very easy to transplant and is wind resistant. This makes the White Pine the perfect choice as a windscreen or privacy border, but it also looks just as elegant when it is standing alone.
