The Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) is considered to be the tallest tree east of the Rocky Mountains, and one of the most historically important. This tree, which ranges from 80′ up to 180+’ at its record tallest, was the premier tree for timber in North America in the 18th and 19th century. Due to its massive demand in furniture, construction, and farming, stands of this pine were dramatically wiped out by 1900.
The Eastern White Pine is distributed through the Eastern United States and Southeastern Canada. It is recognizable from its long, slender cone, uniform crown, and five-needled fascicle.
