Shortleaf Pine Tree Description

Shortleaf Pine Tree

Shortleaf pine tree is the heartiest and most flexible option of the tree within the southern tree family. The tree's overall appearance is tall, with a simple leaf complex with a linear leaf shape. It has branches that spread out evenly to form a pyramidal crown that extends to an open position with time and years of growth. The tree is traditionally a healthy bright green with approximately 5-inch pine needles grow in tufts. The tree tends to bloom during February and March and bloom in yellow color.

The tree typically experiences a slow annual growth rate throughout its first 10 to 15 years. By the time the tree is 20 years of age, the growth rate begins to slow. Eventually, this tree can reach anywhere from 50 to 100 feet in height. 


Shortleaf Pine Tree, Pinus Rigida should be planted in a partly shady area with dry soil moisture levels

The tree is quite drought-tolerant but still requires a medium amount of water to grow properly and thrive. One should avoid complete soil dryness by offering the appropriate amount of water. The tree will also need to be pruned to maintain its healthy shape and remove the dead growth to allow new foliage. By fertilizing the tree three times a year, the tree will be sure to gain the nutrients it requires for survival. With relatively low maintenance and the tree being extremely hearty, this tree is a great option to add a hearty shape to any landscaping. 

The tree is native to 21 southeastern states. These trees are found to be highly hearty and great for producing lumber for several uses. However, if the tree cannot be found in the native species and the tree is being planted, there is an ideal time frame in which to do this.

Typically, the best time to plant new trees would be around August, September, and even October. The air should feel like Fall has arrived, and the hottest days of summer need to be over. Additionally, the tree should be planted before the ground freezing to get the best-rooted tree during the planting process.


Shortleaf pine trees, Pinus Rigida are available for sale online at Tn Nursery

This tree prefers to grow in the eastern United States, but it can also be found in Canada. It is commonly planted on farms and used for lumber because of its durability. This type of  tree has many uses, but they are not always easy to find. They are often very expensive when you do find them at local nurseries or farm stores. If you want this type of tree for your yard, you might need to search online or go out of state to get one.

    Great Shortleaf Pine!

    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.

    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.
