Pinus Strobus is a large pine native to eastern North America, occurring from Newfoundland west to Minnesota and southeastern Manitoba, and south along the Appalachian Mountains to the northern edge of Georgia.
White pines, Pinus strobus, prefer well-drained soil and cool, humid climates, but also grow in boggy areas and rocky highlands. In mixed forests, this dominant tree towers over all others, including the large hardwoods.
The White Pines are credited as being North America’s tallest tree and there have been reports of trees reaching over 70m.
