White Pine: The Largest Pine in the United States

White Pine

The white pine (Pinus Strobus L) holds a special place in our hearts at Christmas Tree Farms because it is the state tree of Michigan (and also of Maine). But actually, the white pine can be found in an abundant of enivronments all over the country. Also known as the eastern white pine, northern white pine, Weymouth pine, and soft pine, it can survive in very boggy areas as well as rocky areas, but it’s most ideal place to grow is in moist, sandy loam soils.
