Why the Audubon® Eastern White Pine Treeling?
The majestic Eastern White Pine is a large, fast-growing tree for spacious properties that makes one of the quickest and prettiest evergreen privacy screens you can buy. Let this wonderful native Pine’s fluffy clouds of soft, blue-green foliage absorb traffic noise and headlight glare, while filling your yard with the fresh, calming fragrance of Pine needles and the relaxing “whisper” of the wind through Pine trees. White Pines also provide food and shelter for countless species of birds and other wildlife. And to top it all off, unlike many fast-growing trees, White Pine is remarkably long-lived, so this legacy tree will not only please your household, but will enrich the lives of several generations to come.
Massive (200-foot) White Pines once covered the Northeast, but the usefulness of their wood brought about the near-total demise of these giants. Their long trunks (“boles”) were much in demand for sailing ship masts (and the British harvest of them hotly contested in the period leading up to the Revolutionary War). White Pines still thrive in the East, but today they serve peaceful purposes. The wood is used in framing houses and for paper pulp; young trees are grown for Christmas trees. And “pine tar” is the stuff still used famously by baseball players!
How to use in the landscape?
If you're looking for a fast growing evergreen, then look no further! The foliage consists of long, thin needles light green in color with a slightly bluish cast. Eastern White Pines produce light brown cones that mature in late summer. An ideal specimen tree for large areas.

What is the definition of Native?
“In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money.” – The National Audubon Society

How To Plant
Eastern White Pine prefers a cool-summer climate, like that found in its native haunts in New England, the Great Lakes States, and high elevations in the South. It’s easy to transplant, and makes a fast growing tree in youth, slowing down in old age. Each year’s new flush of growth radiates from around the same point on the trunk, creating a tiered effect. Lower tiers can be removed to create an open space underneath, or left in place to make for an easy—though rather sticky—climbing tree.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
