Pinus resinosa

Commonly known as red pine, is a majestic evergreen conifer native to North America. This tall and straight-trunked tree is characterized by its distinctive reddish-brown bark and long, slender needles that grow in pairs. Red pine is renowned for its stately appearance and thrives in well-drained sandy soils. With a moderate growth rate, it forms a dense, pyramidal canopy that provides excellent windbreak and shelter. The tree's resinous wood has been historically valued for various purposes, including timber and pulp. Red pine is a popular choice for reforestation efforts, timber production, and landscaping, where its beauty and resilience make it a striking addition to parks, large estates, and natural areas.
