Eastern White Pine

Hamilton Township, Groveville, New Jersey 08610, United States

Created By: Unity College


Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) is a large coniferous evergreen tree. Eastern White Pine was chosen for the tour, because it is a conifer, and it is the tallest tree on the east coast, capable of growing to 150 feet in height and 5 feet in diameter. (Sadly none of the trees here are that large). These trees have long green needles in bundles of 5. These trees are native, and are the state tree of Maine.

They ooze huge gobs of incedibly sticky sap through wounds in the tree, so I recommend being careful when near them. The sap can get on skin or clothes that touch the trunk, or on shoes that walk under the tree.

Several of these trees are planted in a row here along the power line right-of-way.
