If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.
White Pine Tree Seeds
Homeowners living in zones three to eight can easily grow white pine trees. This includes everyone living in the United States, except those residing in Deep South Texas, South Louisiana, most of Florida, Southwestern Arizona, many parts of California, and Southeastern Washington.
In their natural environment, white pine trees can grow to be 135 feet tall. When planted by homeowners or in commercial settings, these trees often reach a height between 50 and 80 feet.
White pine trees grow rapidly, and when they are mature, they often have a 20-to-40-foot span.
These trees that have a pyramidal shape can tolerate many soil conditions. They prefer to be planted in slightly acidic soil where they will get at least four hours of sun daily. This tree is so hardy that it naturally grows in many different settings from rocky cliff edges to bogs. The white pine tree thrives best when planted in well-drained soil, but it needs an occasional watering if conditions get too dry.
The blue-green needles of this tree are attached to branches in sets of five. They are soft to the touch and very pliable and grow to be between three-and-five inches long. After this tree reaches maturity, you may see some needles turn yellow. The yellowing color indicates older needles that are about to drop to make room for new growth. This process typically happens in the fall, but depending on your environment, it can occur in the spring.

Male and female pinecones grow on the same tree. They usually start to grow in the early spring. If you look closely, you can see that male pinecones have overlapping scales. As the pinecone matures, the scales stop overlapping, and male pinecones release seeds. Female pinecones on this tree are much larger than their male counterparts. They can grow to be 8-inches long and 1-inch in diameter.
If you are looking for a long-living tree that grows quickly and efficiently, consider white pine trees. They can live to be up to 200-years-old and reach heights up to 80 feet tall when planted. They are particularly useful as windbreaks and screens, and they will grow in almost any condition.
