Plant Description: The lob lobby pine, or Pinus taeda
It is a fast-growing pine tree that adapts well to many soil types. It is most commonly referred to as the lob lobby pine, rosemary pine, old field pine, bull pine, Indian pine, or long straw pine. It is drought tolerant, not needing much precipitation to thrive. It is a fragrant pine species, which is where it got its nickname "rosemary pine." It was once famous for its use as a lumber tree because of its widespread growth. It is native throughout many areas of the United States and provides food and shelter for many native species of animals, ranging from birds to rodents. It produces dry pinecones that are three to six inches in size.
Loblobby pine seedlings are resilient, as they can grow in various conditions. They can withstand drought and flooding. They need sun for at least six hours a day to thrive but can grow in many different soil types. These seedlings are easily transplanted and are incredibly versatile. By purchasing lob lobby pine seedlings, you are helping to regerminate our forests, which are an essential part of the natural American ecosystem. Your lob lobby pine tree will display beautiful green pine needles year-round as an evergreen.
The best way to plant lob lobby pine seedlings is to sow a few seeds with no more than 1/4 inch of soil coverage. Water the soil frequently to saturation. Although a mature lob lobby pine will not discriminate between soil types, moist soil is essential in promoting plant growth.
