Pinus strobus (Eastern White Pine)
Eastern White Pine is the largest conifer of forests in the eastern and upper midwestern United States.* It is common in the Virginia mountains and is native to NoVA except to Arlington. It neither abides air pollution of urban and populated areas nor salt spray, but given the right environment and enough room to grow, this conifer will become a magnificent specimen.
*It is native to DC; to MD’s northern counties and those surrounding DC; and throughout PA. It is adventive in DE. In VA, it is infrequent in the Piedmont and rare in the Coastal Plain.
