Loblolly Pine

Pinus taeda

Description:

Pinus taeda (Loblolly Pine) is one of several pines native to the Southeastern United States, from central Texas east to Florida, and north to Delaware and Southern New Jersey. It is particularly dominant in the eastern half of North Carolina, where there are huge expanses consisting solely of Loblolly Pine trees. In the rest of the South, forests often contain Loblolly Pines along with many other species of trees. The wood industry classifies the species as a southern yellow pine.

Habitat:

With the advent of wildfire suppression, Loblolly Pine has come to prevalence in some parts of the Deep South that were once populated with greater numbers of Longleaf Pine and, especially in northern Florida, Slash Pine.
