Virginia Pine seedlings are a conifer that's found up and down the East coast and the Appalachian mountains. It's a hardy tree that grows well in poor soils and has several uses ranging from ornamental to animal shelter. The tree grows about 18 inches yearly and takes about five years to reach its mature height. When the Virginia Pine reaches about three years old, it produces red-brown cones. Planting these tree seedlings results in an attractive tree that's hardy, doesn't require a lot of maintenance, and creates a solid stand of trees if you plant multiples in a row or a group.
They grow best in growing zones 4 to 8 and have no soil type or preference. They also grow best in sandy or clay soils. These seedlings can be planted and thrive where other pines can't or won't and are an excellent choice when planting on land that has become barren. When planting seedlings, you need to stake and secure the seedling to help it resist being blown over and uprooted. As it grows, it will root itself and strengthen. Once you notice that it has turned into a sturdy sapling, you can take it off the stake and let it grow freely.
The ideal location to plant this tree is in an area with full or partial sun. You will need to water it regularly until its root system gets established. Afterward, you can let the tree get watered by rain.
Virginia Pine Seedlings is also known as the Christmas tree pine due to its conical shape and lush foliage. It can grow up to 40 feet in height, and its trunk can reach up to 20 inches in diameter. The tree tends to be self-pruning, but it responds just fine to regular trimming and won't go into shock afterward. Keeping the tree pruned is recommended to maintain its shape as it can become scraggly and suffer limb damage. It will still have limb damage even with pruning, but maintaining the tree reduces the potential for broken limbs and keeps it at the desired height.
The tree's sturdy nature lends itself well to being used as a windbreak or a natural barrier, but make sure to give the Virginia Pine tree seedlings ample space when planning their layout. They need 20 to 25 feet between each plant as the tree has a shallow root system. Giving the trees enough space helps them grow without interfering with each other and allows them to spread their branches out to create a full skirt that doesn't touch a neighboring tree.
