Loblolly Pine

#11 - Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda)

Pine family, Pinaceae

A fast-growing southern pine, whatever this tree lacks in beauty it makes up for in its value as a timber source and its ability to grow in wet and poor soils. The long needles grow in clusters of three, and the large cones have sharp spines on the tips. In its native habitat the tree will grow up to 120 feet tall, however, this far north our specimen is one of the largest in Pennsylvania.
