Appearance: Pitch pine is the only 3-needled hard pine native to eastern Canada. The needles are 7-12 cm long, twisted and blunt-tipped. Mature bark has flaky dark gray plates and tufts of needles or small branches. Cones are covered in sharp spines, and can remain on the tree for many years until opened by fire.
Site and soils: Pitch pine is restricted to a small area in eastern Ontario along the St. Lawrence river. This is mostly due to its preference for poor, sandy soils and harsh conditions.
Potted stock is sold by pot size and not directly related to the plant size. We try to ensure the proper pot size is used to allow proper plant root and top development can occur for future planting success.
We do on occasion purchase seed from other areas for purpose grown trees such as Balsam and Fraser Fir for Christmas trees where no local seed sources are available.
Our plants are suitable and hardy for planting in areas throughout Eastern and Central Ontario from Toronto or North Bay eastward as well as southwestern Quebec. Our plants are hardy for other locations but optimal growth may not be met, for advice on moving stock to other locations please contact the nursery office.
