One Of my Favorite Trees - White Pines

from: B Hirst




Planting White Pine Trees White pines. Whenever I think of
white pines, I remember hunting when I was a kid and standing
near trees that were giants. Now every pine tree I plant, I can
invision those days in the deep woods and those grand trees and
hope someone else will have that same enjoyment. These trees
will help you too in establish a desired vision to your
landscape.



Beyond their size, white pines also fill important ecological
niches. They grow across broad ranges of forest and urban
conditions, finding much of North America to their liking.



White Pine trees need protection from deer, disease, insects,
and competing weeds and shrubs. The better your weed control the
better your trees will grow. When seedlings are planted, it best
to plant them with large spacings to allow more light to the
plant. If these trees are planted in shade, they tend to be more
open. White pines are used around new construction because they
perform in a wide range of soil conditions. If you have
compacted soil from new construction, we suggest smaller trees
of 3-5' height.







Growing anything under white pines and spruces is tough and it
is not the acid issue. The conifers produce such a fine mass of
roots close to the soil surface that anything else trying to
grow in that area has to compete for water and nutrients. Thus
other plants often tend not to do very well in this envirement.
You will need to provide good moisture and fertilizty during the
establishment period to get them off to a good start. Root
pruning of the white pine can help but don't cut out an area
larger than 5% of the root zone at a time.
