Eastern White Pine
Pinus strobus
A large, fast growing native evergreen reaching heights of 100 feet. A 5- needled pine with soft green needles 4 inches long. Easily transplanted it grows best on fertile, moist, well drained soils but can tolerate wet, swampy areas and dry, rocky ridges. Provides excellent cover for wildlife in dense, mass plantings. Understory plantings in deciduous forest provide good habitat for ruffed grouse and mature stands are good roosting sites for wild turkey.

Seedlings are 3 years old, 16 to 20 inches (avg. 18 ).
