Bull pine seedlings
Bull Pine Seedlings are transplanted when they are few years old and make great wind resistors when planted in a series. These trees are hardy and are planted in a place that might need shelter from the elements. Pines grow in many varieties, but the weathered look of a Bull Pine makes it hard to miss. It becomes best in places where the soil is drained and dry but will grow in dark spots too. The pine is such a common sight in the Southeast sometimes they go unnoticed but birds love to make the nest in these trees, and they use the nuts from the Bull Pine to eat. Pine needles shelter things on the ground from winters cold, but the Bull Pines branches block out the sun allowing very few plants to grow when in its shade range. The best soil is acidic and sunny. Bull Pines grow naturally all over the Southeast and are very pretty during the winter since they are evergreens. People use pines for Christmas trees, and the scent of the resin is familiar to almost everyone living within reach of them.
Bull Pine trees magnificent sights to see, high, towering and weather-worn.
When the wind blows, the tree stands there like a wall that has been there forever. If you have ever traveled or lived in the Deep South, you have had the opportunity to experience the majesty of the Bull Pine. The Branches grow well above the surface of the earth letting the tree stretch. Younger trees bear branches on the lower trunk but as they become the branches move up with the tree. Branches fan out like arms stretched in a slightly upward sweep with needles that give it a rough snarly look.
Pick a spot where you might think nothing might grow and you will find the Bull Pine. It grows in many climates but loves acidic soil. The tree is also called the Loblolly because it flourishes in damp areas. It grows in groups and is cultivated by growers for its timber. Needles on this tree can expand between 4 to 9 inches in length increasing in what scientist call fascicles. The needles are as burly as the tree looks, with bluish green twisted features.
Bull Pine Seedlings look bushy and aged with tough gray bark but are good neighbors for clean air and weather protection.
