The White Pine is a tree that made Wisconsin famous in the old logging days and is a native of Wisconsin. The soft long needles have a blue-green color with a hint of white. This tree is a favorite of landscapers and nurseries. Years of meticulous shearing by our farm, have created a beautiful dense conical or pyramid shaped tree that will be maintenance free for you! Because of the heavy trimming when the trees were young these white Pine trees are thick from the bottom up and they will retain their great shape for many years!
If you desire to keep your tree a certain height or width you can do so by trimming it only once a year between June 6 and June 20th. Just snip off the central leader and trim off some new growth! Some people have kept White Pine the same size and fullness for 50 years!
These trees are popular to block out or to create a screen as well as to beautify a yard or a cabin setting! White Pine trees are shade tolerant, still they will get thinner and stretch out in lower light conditions! In full sun they stay thick and compact. They can grow in just about any soil from sand to clay, and they are very hardy growing in zones 3-8. They do not have a single tap root like Red Pines, but instead they have a fibrous web of many roots.
