Shortleaf (Yellow) Pine

Pinus echinata


This is a medium-sized species of pine tree. Bark on mature trees is dark yellowish-brown to reddish-brown and grows in large, flat-topped scaly plates. The tree prefers light, well-drained or dry soils. The Shortleaf Pine is native to south-central and southeastern states in the U.S. This is an important commercial tree for timber. Often, lumber firms sell it under the name of "Southern Yellow Pine." Its wood is used in carpentry and construction, as well as in the manufacture of various wood products. (taken from Internet)
