White Pine

5 Gallons
  • Pollinator value: Medium. Serves as larval host to butterflies and moths; songbirds feed on the seeds; birds nest in its branches.

    This stately and hardy evergreen is the Northeast’s largest conifer, which in the wild can reach above 100 feet.

    It has a distinctive, plum-like outline, with branches that grow horizontal and in tiers making it a popular Christmas tree. It produces feathery clusters of light- to blue-green needles and cones of 6 to 8 inches.

    White Pine tolerates a wide range of soil conditions but does not thrive in urban conditions or tolerate many air pollutants.
