A beautiful looking evergreen with long, soft needles. Quick growing for an evergreen, white pine ranges in height from 20-35 m (65-100′) in the wild. While white pine grows best in a sandy loam soil, it tolerates a wide range of soil types and moisture conditions (but not saturated soil). White Pine wood is straight grained and an absolute treat to work with – it is used for finishing, trim work, cabinetry and even as dimensional lumber. Many mammals and birds live in, on or feed from this tree. White Pine is a long lived, native tree of Canada and is Ontario’s provincial tree.
How to Grow
Stratification of tree seed occurs naturally outdoors through the winter. Sowing tree seeds outdoors in the fall takes advantage of this natural effect. To stratify indoors, mix the seed with a moistened, sterile, peat based growing medium in a container, wrap in a ventilated bag, and place it in a refrigerator for 12 to 20 weeks. In the spring plant the seed in a sheltered spot outside to grow into seedlings. Transplant to permanent site when well rooted.
