Virginia Pine Seedling – Pinus Virginiana is a Moderate Growing Evergreen
Virginia Pine Seedling - Pinus Virginiana is a moderate-growing evergreen tree that, due to its ability to take root and grow where other trees cannot, is sometimes called the “Scrub Pine” for its rough appearance. In New Jersey, it is also called the Jersey Pine, as southern NY and NJ are the northernmost parts of its native range, which is typically along the eastern and western slopes of the Appalachian Mountains.
Virginia Pine Seedling are Thriving in Neglect and Drought Conditions and are Typically Trouble Free
True to its scruffy appearance, it thrives on neglect and drought conditions, and in well-drained soils with acidic or neutral pH, sandy loams, and heavy clay. It does best under full sun and has evolved to invade barren embankments and hillsides where few other trees can grow. If you have a landscape problem where hills have been stripped bare, abandoned fields, or even infertile farmland, the Virginia Pine Seedling will soon take root and thrive to add a much-needed windbreak and bit of greenery in those sunny, bare areas. They can suffer from the same diseases as other pine trees, but not often, and are usually trouble-free.
Virginia Pine Seedling uses as a Christmas tree.
Virginia Pine Seedling has short needles, about 1.5 to 3 inches long, in pairs of two, with a twisted shape similar to a Scotch Pine. The reddish-brown bark of a young Virginia Pine Seedling is very smooth and thin, but it becomes scaly over time. In some southern states, it is used as a Christmas Tree, as the younger Virginia Pines has an irregular pyramidal structure which can quickly reshape into a classical Christmas Tree cone. Like the Scotch Pine, which it closely resembles, the Virginia Pine will grow a crown of interlocking branches at its peak when it reaches maturity.
The Virginia Pine Seedling is a slow-to-moderate growing, evergreen perennial native to the United States. Initially, the tree was known to grow in areas ranging from Pennsylvania southward to Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia. In a westward direction, Virginia pine trees were found in Tennessee, Indiana, and portions of Ohio.
With the help of genetic enhancement techniques and exceptional methods of selection, the expanse of Virginia pine trees now reaches to Louisiana, Florida, and eastern Texas. In the northern direction, they are found in southern parts of New York and New Jersey.
The Virginia Pine Seedling (Pinus Virginiana) has been nicknamed 'Scrub Pine,' because of its rough appearance and aptitude for growing in places where other trees fail to take root. Drought and neglect do not discourage these seedlings from growing into mature pine trees, a process that takes from 60 to 90 years.
These versatile trees grow well in practically any type of soil, preferring acidic or neutral-pH soils containing high concentrations of clay or sandy loam. Full sunlight is best for these trees, and they excel as a windbreak or natural fencing in uneven terrain or unfertile soil.
Virginia pine trees have used as railroad ties or rough lumber. They recently have been harvested as pulpwood. With their thick, dense foliage, they provide shelter for birds and wildlife. The shape and texture of young Virginia pines make them beautiful as Christmas trees in many Southern states where they grow on farms for sale at Christmas tree lots.
It is no wonder that thousands of acres of Virginia Pine Seedlings are planted in the United States each year.
