Our P3 Super Plug trees boast a soil plug volume of a whopping 15.3 cubic inches, over 3X the size of its P2 counterpart! The biomass of the trees also increases substantially with each plug size increment. This includes the soil plug size, root system and stem diameter.

Planted as a solitary or in groups, the White Pine is stately beyond words. Avoid heavy, poorly drained soils. Sensitive to air pollution and salt, this conifer is best suited in wooded or rural areas.

Fun facts:

  • The Eastern White Pine is the state tree of Maine.
  • The seeds from this evergreen were introduced into England from Maine in 1605 by Captain George Weymouth of the British Navy. This conifer is appropriately named the Weymouth Pine in England.

Common uses for the White Pine include:

  • Windbreaks
  • Reforestation
  • Shade trees
  • Great wildlife value
  • Lumber production
  • Christmas trees
  • The cones make excellent kindling

White pine seeds are loved by black bears, rabbits, red squirrels and many birds. Due to the dense foliage this conifer exhibits, it provides important nesting habitat for woodpeckers, mourning doves, common grackles, nuthatches and chickadees. Bald eagles enjoy nesting atop the largest Eastern White Pines. Excellent deer cover.

Fun Fact: Large birds build nests close to the trunk, while small birds build their nests well out onto the limbs.
