Pitch Pine Tree - TN Nursery

Pitch Pine Tree

The Pitch pine tree is a rugged, evergreen native to eastern North America, characterized by its long, dark green needles, rough bark, and the production of resin-rich "pitch" that has various commercial uses. The Pitch Pine Tree is also known as Pinus rigida. The latter term means that it is stiff (rigid) and has needles, which are thin, long, and sharp leaves. Those needles are stiff as well. They can live for 200 years and have been used to make things like paper, lumber, pulp, and turpentine, while their high levels of resin, which preserve them from decay, have resulted in them being used in the building of ships in the past years. Locations Of The Pitch Pine Tree They are predominantly located in an area that covers much of the Northeast United States and stretches down to around the Tennessee-North Carolina border—i.e., an area focused on the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Small parts of Georgia and South Carolina are included as well. North of the border, this type of greenery is found in limited numbers in Ontario and Quebec.  Size Of The Pitch Pine Tree This type is on the smaller side. It usually grows to around 20-100 feet in height and extends by about a foot per year for the first 60 years of its life, assuming that the conditions are optimal. Its needles are usually about 2-5 inches long, while its cones tend to be 2 inches long. One way they stand out is through their irregular shape. For example, they tend to possess twisted branches and do not effectively engage in self-pruning, which is the shedding of damaged or shaded branches. However, this type's trunk is usually mostly straight with a gentle curve. Pitch Pine Trees Can Take Lots Of Heat Pitch Pine trees can regenerate at a high level, utilizing their basal roots, which dig far into the soil if necessary. This helps them survive fire damage, and their thick barks help protect their trunks against that threat. In addition, their cones are sealed with resin, which requires heat, such as from a fire, to open. So, in the worst-case scenario, those cones would open, and their seeds would be spread, resulting in a new generation being grown in the area.
