Pitch Pine

Pinus rigida

Native

Pitch pine is native to eastern North America, however it is restricted to sites along the St. Lawrence River. It prefers poor, sandy soils and harsh conditions and can grow up to 20 meters tall. Pitch pine is dependent on forest fires for reproduction, the cones open and release seeds in response to extreme heat. The cones also are covered in sharp spines, and can remain on the tree for many years until opened by fire. Can be used to reforest degraded, sandy soil.

Leaf

3-sided twisted needles in groups of 3. Needles 7-12 cm long.

Fruit/Seed

Female cone light brown and woody, 5-9 cm long and cluster near branch tips.
