The Eastern White Pine (North Carolina Seed Source) is mainly offered to our southern customers. Since we receive the seed from North Carolina, it makes it hardier than our seed from Michigan.
This tree can be used for Christmas trees, windbreaks, forestry, millwork, and construction lumber.
Eastern White Pine seeds are enjoyed by rabbits, squirrels, and several species of birds. The bark is also enjoyed by mice, rabbits, beavers, and porcupines. This tree is a great provider of nesting sites for birds as well.
History & Lore
Long before any settlers arrived in North America, the Eastern White Pine had been flourishing among the land. This tree is commonly referred to as the ‘Tree of Peace’ by the Haudenosaunee Nation. It was given this name after Dekanawidah helped to create the Five Nations Confederacy. This confederacy included the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca Tribes.
