General Description

White pines have short but softer needles and prefer well-drained soil and cool, humid climates, but also grow in boggy areas. In mixed forests, this dominant tree towers over all others, including the large hardwoods. It was formally known as the most valuable and seemingly inexhaustible tree of the Northeast.

 

Pests

The white pine weevil (Pissodes strobi) and White Pine Blister Rust (Cronartium ribicola), an introduced fungus, can damage or kill these trees. Young white pines are heavily browsed by deer.

 

Uses

White pine is used to manufacture furniture, doors and windows, mouldings, interior wood trim and decorative veneers. Considered a  soft wood pine.
