  Longleaf Pine Tree




 
Alternative Views:


The Long Leaf Pine, as the name suggests, grows a compact cluster of pine needles that measures as long as 18".  The huge pine cones of the Longleaf Pine require  almost twenty months to fully mature, but the wildlife animals gather near the trees to await the falling of the cones that open and deliver masses of pine nuts for the birds and animals to feast upon.  The seemingly slow and early development of the tree  occurs mostly underground as the Longleaf Pine progresses through the  grassy-stage to produce a long taproot which can be as lengthy as the long leaf sapling's trunk's height is. After 5 to 10 years, the Longleaf Pine tree has a rapid and vertical growth acceleration,  but only after this long period does it develop its massive, tree-like appearance. Longleaf Pine seeds are very large when compared to other pine nuts and are highly favored by birds and squirrels that gather underneath the trees to catch their food as it matures.

The Long Leaf Pine Tree was the most common shade tree in ancient American forests, a place where the pine nuts of the Long Leaf Pine Tree provide a good source of food for other wildlife. The Long Leaf Pine Trees grow to the age of 300 years, a great deal of lumber can be harvested from a single tree. Squirrels and other wildlife like to make their nests in the branches of Long Leaf Pine Trees. Traditionally, the historical "yellow leaf pine" that was used to build great numbers of houses in cities and rural areas is known today as the Long Leaf Pine Tree. Its hard to stress the importance of the Long Leaf Pine Tree in the development of the early economy of the United States.

Almost satisfied May 6, 2014
Reviewer: Ron from Smyrna, GA United States  
Ordered online, ten one-gallon long leaf pines.  Ordering easy, shipment efficient.  Was surprised, however, to receive a bundle of ten bare-root trees about a foot long including roots, in good condition.  Silly me, thought there would be, well, ten one-gallon potted well-established albeit small trees. The website said nothing to suggest a gallon didn't mean a pot. I'll plant the trees, and not worth getting in a twist about, but I wouldn't have paid as much if the website had let me know. I could have ordered a hundred seedlings from the Forestry Commission.
