White Pine Facts

White Pines (Pinus strobus) are massive conifers of the eastern U.S. forests. They are often some of the very tallest trees in the forest. In fact, it is said that some were once well over 200 feet tall pre-colonial times. Their tall straight trunks made them prized for ship masts. It is the state tree of Maine. Its needles are in bundles of five and its cones are slender and roughly 3 to 6 inches long.
