Shortleaf Pine Tree
Shortleaf Pine Tree: The towering shortleaf pine tree is an evergreen species native to the southeastern United States. It thrives across twenty-one states in the warmest USDA growing zones; it prefers hot, humid temperatures in the summer but will survive winter cold snaps.
Many who order shortleaf pine tree seedlings from TN Nursery intend to reforest or add them to natural areas. Tree farms commonly plant them to grow to harvest as lumber after they mature. However, others want to leave behind a long-lived tree that will last for many decades.
Besides these uses, the shortleaf pine tree helps provide winter cover to prevent soil erosion. Some use it to help retain the earth in open areas that suffer from wind erosion.
The species is drought-tolerant once mature; however, it requires about an inch of water each week during its earliest developmental stages. Other than giving the seedlings some water if you do not receive adequate rainfall, it requires no further care.
Other common names for this tree include the following:
- ● Yellow pine
- ● Old field pine
- ● Rosemary pine
Shortleaf Pine Will Grow Sky High
Shortleaf pine will reach a sky-high mature size of as much as a hundred feet. It forms an attractive pyramid shape with a gently rounded top.
The tree's bark is dark brown and might have a red tinge; it has a slightly scaled texture that adds visual interest. The needles of the shortleaf pine grow in bundles of two to three and are a rich blue-green color.
As the tree matures, it will develop and drop pinecones. The pine cones are oval-shaped, relatively small (about two inches), and pleasingly symmetrical. People who enjoy arts and crafts enjoy collecting and using these in craft projects, especially during the winter holiday season.

Tree was as described and in great shape. As the roots were packed with the moisture retainer product, the small tree looked deep green and I've already planted it.
I bought my health short leaf pine tree last year. It is truly a good buy,
Took almost a month to deliver but all look healthy. Four of the 6 had the tops cut out and we’re spindly. They have been in the ground for a week and look healthy.
