Loblolly Pine Tree
Loblolly Pine Tree: Pinus taeda, the loblolly pine tree, is a frequent sight around the southern states. The native North American species is the second most common tree in the United States.
Although the loblolly pine calls the south its home, don't let that stop you from growing it in other moderately warm locations. The southern parts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the lower midwest are also conducive to this tree.
TN Nursery customers plant the loblolly pine tree in natural areas around their homes. We also have landscapers purchase these. They love to include this species around parks, golf courses, and similar locations.
The loblolly pine tree loves a sunny location with fast-draining but moist soil. However, it will also tolerate drought.
Other common names for the loblolly pine tree include the following:
- ● Bull pine
- ● North Carolina pine
- ● Old field pine
The Majestic Beauty of the Loblolly Pine
The loblolly pine tree grows straight and tall--rising as high as ninety to a hundred feet into the sky and with a breadth of about twenty feet. It has upright-curving branches at the top, while the lower limbs tend to dip downward. The tree's crown gently rounds as it matures, making a lovely shape. Up to ten-inch long, dark green needles form on the branches, typically in bundles of three.
The tree blooms in March and April each year and produces shapely pine cones that crafters prize for winter wreath-making efforts. The pine cones are cylindrical to cone-shaped, with well-defined, pointed spines. They usually grow in attractive clusters of two to three, with each pine cone measuring approximately three inches long.
