Virginia Pine grows best in well-drained soils
The Virginia Pine (Pinus virginiana) is small to a medium-sized evergreen tree with yellowish-green pine needles that are often twisted in pairs and range in length from 1 to 3” in. Its bark is reddish-brown and broken into small, flat plates on mature trees, a feature that is typical of pine trees. It can produce cones anywhere from 3 to 80 years of maturity, but the average age is five years. It is hardy to Zones 4 through 8 and can adapt to a variety of soils, even the most inhospitable. It grows at a rapid rate during the spring and summer. Its resilient features have earned the tree the nickname The Poverty Pine. It is often used to reforest cleared or abandoned the land. Up to 1600 Virginia Pines can occupy one acre of land at 20 years of maturity. As the maturity increases, the tree per acre decreases significantly to roughly 20 trees per acre at 70 years. It grows best in well-drained soils and is less likely to thrive in very wet conditions. It is tolerant to freezing, frost, and shade but thrives in humidity. They are shallow rooted trees and therefore susceptible to damage from wind, severe storms, and ice. Mature, this pine tree can reach heights of up to 70 ft. But averages 40 ft. A mature tree can achieve widths of up to 30 ft. When open. The Virginia Pine is frequently used as a Christmas tree. Other names include Forest Weed, Scrub Pine, Jersey Pine and Spruce Pine.
