October 4 - White Pine - Pinus strobus

Pinus strobus

This White Pine tree lives at the John C. Campbell school.

The White Pine tree needles make a delicious vitamin C rich tea. I drink this most everyday.  Put a handful of  needles in hot water and steep for about 10 minutes. Strain, and enjoy. No need to buy vitamin C tablets, just drink your pine tree tea. yummm.

  1. I didn't know that about the needles, I'll go look up a white pine tree and see if we have them here.
