Point of Interest Details

Native to the sandy soils of central New Jersey, the Pitch Pine, or Pinus rigida, help fill a microclimate known as the Pine Barrens region. The Pitch Pine is unique in its tufts of needles located along the trunk of the tree, as well as small cones than most pines. Due to the rising temperatures of climate change, the Pitch Pine has become increasingly successful in this climate. As temperature zones continue to shift, we hope to prepare for an easier transition with successful transplants of trees typically grown in warmer climates.
