Grow Around Pools For Privacy
White Pine trees are excellent living fence trees to add around pools or any place one desires privacy. The White Pine evergreen tree, with really long needles, is the embodiment of the ideal Christmas tree. These lavish trees are stated trees of Michigan and Maine, and they are homes for squirrels and the Common Crossbill.
Remarkably, the White Pine trees take a couple of years to establish roots that will support them for about 150 to 200 years at maturity. Reports have shown it can live 450 years! After the evergreen has rooted, it will shoot up quickly, and sometimes the growth rate is over 4 feet each year, especially if there is a wet season.
Additionally, the tallness of the White Pine tree can reach 80 to 100 feet. Some grow to about 230 feet tall, the tallest tree in eastern North America. The width can get up to 4 1/2 feet across. Constraining the height for a couple of years by pruning the top leaders of the tree to slow them down will add to their value.
