White Pine Tree
White Pine trees, Pinus strobus, native to North America, are often seen throughout the United States. They can grow in virtually any climate making them a household favorite. The white pine is no exception.
One of the greatest perks of the tree? It's longevity. While they live on average for 200 years, there are some that live as long as 500 years. Generation after generation of your family can sit under the shade of your beautiful tree knowing their grandparents and great-grandparents did the same.
This magnificent tree can also grow to be very large.
White pine trees are typically about 80 feet tall, with some as tall as 150 feet, and up to 40 feet wide.
They can grow up to three feet each year, which can make them predominant trees in your yard in just a few short years. Because of this, these aren't typically good trees for cramped city yards. This species grows best in wide open spaces. This is also important because they thrive in sunlight; it's best to avoid a shady area.
Contrary to their name, these trees aren't white at all. They have bluish-green needles that will stay green all winter long. While the other trees shed their leaves, a pine tree will keep its green needles making a beautiful backdrop in the snow. Plus, of course, pine trees are often synonymous with Christmas. You can gather the greenery and pinecones to decorate your home for the season, which also brings the fresh smell inside.
Are you looking for a large, sturdy tree for shade and beauty in your yard? This tree is the perfect solution.
It's enormous, lasts for years and years, and, most importantly, White Pine will keep its beauty through every season of the year.
