White Pine: (Pinus strobus) Many lateral branches create a moderately dense canopy, fast growing. Likes moist, sandy soils, but grows well on a variety of soil types. Will grow in clay soils better than most pines. White pines prefer well-drained soil and cool, humid climates, but also grow in boggy areas and rocky highlands. In mixed forests, this dominant tree towers over all the others, including the large hardwoods. Seed is eaten by squirrels, wood duck, bobwhite, pheasant and many varieties of woodpeckers. The seed and needles are eaten by spruce grouse and turkey. Mature height 75-100’, 30-50’ wide. Zones 3-8.
