Description

Short-leaf Pine Seedlings are hearty and know for their irregular crown

Short leaf Pine Seedlings - Pinus echinata. The short-leaf pine is an eastern pine species native to the United States. Finding a home from New York down to Florida and westward to Oklahoma and Texas, it is a hearty tree known for its irregular crown and either straight or crooked appearance depending on the tree in question.

Short-leaf Pine Seedlings naturally crossbreed with other pines

While they can grow in virtually any soil conditions, they take best to land that's moist and well-drained, with soil types including both sand and silt loam. A low soil pH is preferable, as well.

Short leaf Pine Seedlings take their name from their characteristically short "leaves," the leaves in question being the pine's needles. Needles measure around 2 to 4 inches on average and are grouped in clusters of two or three along the branches. Mature trees (about 20 years old or more) also produce pine cones similar in length to the needles, which yield between 25 to 40 seeds once flowering. Flowering takes place every 3 to 10 or 3 to 6 years depending on where the tree is located (northern trees and southern trees, respectively).

Short-leaf Pine Seedlings require lots of sun to thrive

Seedlings can range in size from around 8 inches to 10 inches with a root collar of 4 to 4.8 millimeters in diameter, producing a few inches per year until mature, at which point they can grow up to two feet each subsequent year.

Once they take root, these plants are there for the long haul, setting up complex and healthy root systems to ensure they won't be easily uprooted. Mature trees can grow to be over 100 feet tall with a diameter of nearly 40 inches, continuing to grow over the years to become even taller.
