White Pine

Pinus strobus

Description:

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.

Habitat:

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.

Notes:

The White Pines are credited as being North America’s tallest tree and there have been reports of trees reaching over 70m.
