Pine, Red – 18-24″ (3-0)
Red pine (Pinus resinosa) is a fast growing, long-lived tree that can reach heights of 50-80 feet. It is straight stemmed. Red pine is shade intolerant and prefers full sun on a moist or dry site. It grows best on a well-drained, sandy loam soil. Itis an excellent tree for reforestation of poor, sandy sites. Red pine is self-pruning; there tends not to be dead branches on the trees, and older trees may have very long lengths of branchless trunk below the canopy.
