A signature native plant for the eastern woodland, Eastern White Pine is easy to grow and provides a multitude of landscape uses. Its long, soft needles are held in bundles of 5 and cover the plant thickly yet still give the plant a fine texture. This plant is widely used for barrier plantings, but it makes an outstanding single specimen that loves moist, well-drained soil while providing outstanding nesting area for a laundry list of native birds along with a food source from its production of cones and seed. Keep it from high salt areas and it will grow rapidly to be an appreciated, dominant evergreen in your landscape.
