Shortleaf Pine Tree - A Southern Evergreen Favorite

The shortleaf pine tree matures in 70 to 250 long years of growth. They are transplanted when a few years old and make excellent wind resistors when planted in a series. These trees are hardy and are planted in a place that might need shelter from the elements. Pines grow in many varieties, but the weathered look of a Bull Pine makes it hard to miss. Bull pine grows best in places where the soil is drained and dry but in muddy places. The pine is such a common sight in the Southeast. Sometimes they go unnoticed, but birds love to make a nest in these trees, and they use the nuts from the Bull Pine to eat. Pine needles shelter things on the ground from winter's cold, but the Bull Pine's branches block out the sun allowing very few plants to grow when in its shade range.

Shortleaf Pine is also known by the name "bull Pine" for its hardiness to grow anywhere it's planted

The best soil is acidic and sunny. Bull Pines grow naturally all over the Southeast and are very pretty during the winter since they are evergreens. People use pines for Christmas trees, and the scent of the resin is familiar to almost everyone living within reach of them. The width of the Bull Pine can grow as large as 4 feet, creating quite a large tree. However, cultivated trees are not quite as large as those centered in the forest, but they still grow pretty big.

Shortleaf Pine trees are magnificent sights to see, strong, towering, and weather-worn. When the wind blows, the tree stands there like a wall that has been there forever. The Bull P Branches grow well above the earth's surface, letting the tree stretch. Younger trees bare branches on the lower trunk, but the branches move up with the tree as they grow. Branches fan out like arms stretched in a slightly upward sweep with needles that give it a rough snarly look. This tree can grow up to 110 feet and has the look of a tower as it stands in the forest.

Pick a spot where you might think nothing might grow, and you will find the Bull Pine. It grows in many climates but loves acidic soil and lots of sun. The tree is also called the Loblolly because it flourishes in damp areas. It grows in groups and is cultivated by growers for its timber. Needles on this tree can expand between 4 to 9 inches in length, growing in what scientists call fascicles. The needles are as burly as the tree looks, with bluish-green twisted features. The tree looks bushy and aged with tough gray bark but are good neighbors for clean air and weather protection.

Shortleaf Pine Trees are evergreen and family favorites
