Shortleaf Pine Tree - Pinus echinata For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Shortleaf Pine Tree, or Pinus echinata, is native to the eastern US. The needle-like leaves grow in bundles of 2 to 3. Cones are usually 2 to 3 inches long. This tree is sometimes straight and sometimes crooked with an irregular crown.  These trees thrive when planted in locations that offer moist and well-drained soils.  They are magnificent when fully grown and can be seen rising a lot along the coastal regions as they become well in dry soil conditions.  These trees are very hardy trees and can last through strong storms.  This tree provides smaller needles than others, and they grow in a cylinder shape.  These trees are prevalent because of how durable the wood is and is used a lot in making plywood and lumber for building.

These are an excellent choice for all homeowners and landscapers, and they remain green all throughout the entire year.   An American native found in the southeastern states, the shortleaf pine (Pinaceae Pinus echinata) can be variable in its growth form. It can grow either with a straight or a crooked trunk along with an irregular crown. Shortleaf pines grow up to 100 feet high, and the diameter of their trunk ranges from 20 to 35 inches. Slow-growing compared to other varieties of pines, the shortleaf pine is shade tolerant when young, which makes it able to establish itself under competition with more mature trees. It also develops a deep taproot when quite young, which allows it to flourish in poor soils or sites with marginal growing conditions. The shortleaf pine has the unusual ability to naturally hybridize with either the loblolly pine or the pitch pine in areas when these varieties grow nearby.

Affordable Shortleaf Pine Tree For Every Landscape Design

Shortleaf pine trees are a member of the Pinaceae family. The binomial name is Pinus echinata. The meaning of the scientific name is prickly pine cone tree. It was classified and named in 1768. Shortleaf pines have been called Southern yellow pine, short straw pine, yellow pine, old field pine, Long tag pine, Spruce pine, and Arkansas pine.

Native to 21 Southeastern states, shortleaf pine trees thrive from Southern New York to Northern Florida, west as far as Oklahoma and Missouri, and southwest as far as eastern Texas.

The adaptability of shortleaf pine trees may credit to the deep taproot system that develops early in the tree's life. This root system helps the species survive in a wide variety of soil types and climates.

Physical characteristics of these trees include a straight, tall trunk that lacks the tapering that many trees have. The usual height of shortleaf pines is about 85 feet with a diameter of 30 inches. Some have grown to 120 feet tall with a 4-foot diameter.

Sawmills cut shortleaf pines for lumber, plywood veneer, and wood pulp. Log-home contractors find the tree's strength, durability, and shape excellent for building log cabins.

As seedlings, the trunks of shortleaf pines develop a bend close to the ground level, and buds form in this area. If a tree is destroyed by fire or cut down, the remaining stump will begin new growth to produce a new tree.
