Spruce Pine Tree Description (Virginia Pine)

This pine is an abundant tree found in the East and Southern United States, from New York to Alabama. Due to its steady growth and lifespan of only 90 years, it's a familiar and sustainable choice for reforestation projects. Also known as spruce pine, it can be grown in a home garden, but it's more popular as a Christmas tree. Here are other important facts about Virginia pine trees.

Difference Between Pine and Maple Trees

While pine is softwood, maple is hardwood. Both pine and maple are commonly used for lumber, but Virginia pine is usually grown and used for other purposes. Its abundance makes it an affordable option for artistic softwood designs, such as the use of its dark brown and burgundy bark. While other pines grow taller than a maple tree up to 130 feet, Virginia pines range from 15 to 40 feet.

Virginia Pines Trees Make Good Christmas Trees.

These pines have a pyramid shape, which is one of the reasons they're commonly grown for Christmas trees. But you'll need to prune the tree to give it more even symmetry. Its dark green color is another reason why it fits in with the year-end holidays. The needle-like leaves add to the winter ambiance. Since spruce pine can be grown in various soil types, it's scattered in forests throughout America.

These pines provide for birds, who use the seeds they find within cones that last up to five years on trees. These trees grow wild in forests due to pine cones dropping from parent trees as the seeds mix into the soil. To grow a spruce tree, pick up cones that have fallen to the ground and remove the seeds.

These trees are easy to grow. The seeds are so plentiful that it's easy to find free pine cones. The best time to collect the cones is late summer or early fall.

Then, plant the tree and ensure it gets plenty of light and water. Spruce pines typically grow at a rate of 1-2 feet per year until they mature. Eventually, they can be used to create shade and cool your home in the summer after blooming lovely golden flowers in the spring.

Conclusion

As an abundant natural resource, spruce pine serves many sustainable purposes at an affordable cost. A nice Virginia pine adds energy to your garden, attracting birds and butterflies.

While it's often associated with winter, the fir is a classic evergreen tree for all seasons. It's a viable choice for filling acres of land with green scenery.
