Description: One of the most beautiful of all the evergreen trees, the white pine is easily distinguishable amongst a crowd. These trees make great additions to the landscape if given the room and time to reach their full potential. There are many cultivars of white pine to be found. In natural areas, deer are often a nemesis as they tend to nip off the leaders. Pest and pathogen problems include White Pine Weevil and White Pine Blister Rust, both of which can be fatal.
