Pine Trees

Pine Trees

Pine trees (Pinus spp.) come in a wide variety, with over 100 species in the pine family. They vary greatly in height. White Pines average between 50 and 80 feet. Shorter species, like the Virginia Pine, for example, range between 15 and 40 feet.

Pines are considered evergreen, meaning that they retain their needles for at least two years. Needles also vary by species. Needles range from 1 to 11 inches long, and can be dark green to blue-green in color.

Pines make gorgeous ornamental plantings.  Planted in the right location, pines can soften up an area with its delicate appearance. Smaller varieties work well in large containers or even as shrubs. They function well as windbreaks or privacy screens if planted in groups.

These trees add a special look to all landscapes, especially in winter. The dark green needles provide a stark contrast to the typical gray or white winter landscape.
