  • White pine is distinguished from all other eastern pines by its soft, thin, bluish green needles, which occur in bundles of 5. The rapid growth rate of the white pine makes it an ideal candidate for the landscape, and windbreak applications. White pines attract many different types of wildlife. The seeds are a favorite of rabbits, red squirrels, and many bird species. The dense growth also creates great habitat and cover for birds and mammals during the winter months. The shape of the tree starts out pyramidal and turns oval with maturity.
