April 4 - The White Pine - Pinus strobus L.



The White Pine - Pinus strobus L.


Many small mammals and birds depend on the White Pine tree for food feeding on the seeds, bark and needles.  Bears and deer depend on the White Pine for shelter.  Eagles use the tallest top branches for perches to view the land and sky for miles.  White Pines can live for up to 400 plus years and grow to a height of over 100 feet.
