      Ten-Year Performance of Eastern White Pine - under a Crop Tree Release Regime on an Outwash Site. Leak, William B. Diameter Growth in Even- and Uneven-Aged Northern Hardwoods in New Hampshire Under Partial Cutting. As early as the s, eastern white pine was extensively logged to use for ship masts for the Royal Navy. The tree, which grew extensively in New England, the Appalachians, and the Great Lakes region, was also widely used for building houses and furniture, so very few of the original stands of eastern white pine remain today (Earle, ).

      The white pine is one of the great McGuffins of history, a forgotten prime mover in the creation of both New England and the United States. Now Andrew Vietze has placed that noble tree where it belongs, as a focal point of our national story. White Pine is good history written in a refreshing, breezy style, surprising, illuminating and s: Yields of eastern white pine in New England related to age, site, and stocking / by William B. Leak [et al.]. By. Abstract. 15 p. Topics: White pine--New England.

      The average white pine stand in New England grows from to m³/ha ( to fbm/acre) per year depending on age, site index, and stocking (41). Site index for eastern white pine is. Despite over a century of research on the silviculture (growth and regeneration of forest trees) of eastern white pine in New England, controversy remains over such fundamental issues as stand density management, pruning, and regeneration methods. Should forest managers strive to grow high volumes of small sawlogs using minimal investments and traditional conservative thinning schedules?

White Pine Thinning Study. Trees per Acre. 0 Basal Area (ft. 2 /ac) 0 50   Age and Size. White pine can easily reach years in age, and at least one specimen has been recorded as years old. Individual trees grow to heights of feet—which makes the Eastern White Pine the tallest tree species in New England—and reach a diameter of up to 40 inches.

Needle Identification. White pine was widely distributed in colonial forests of central New England, averaging 20% (with site range of 16% to 22%) of the witness trees in the Connecticut River valley, Pelham Hills, central uplands, and eastern lowlands, where it was an important member of the hemlock–northern hardwood, oak–pine –hemlock, and oak–pine–chestnut.

Eastern white pine is found throughout the eastern portion of North America, where the climate is cool and humid. It grows well in a variety of soils and has a fast growth rate relative to other tree species within its habitat range.

It is a long-lived species, able to grow for years or more. With age, white pine can become ft high and.

The first stocking guide for white pine was developed by Philbrook et al (). It was of conventional format: showing trees and basal area per acre (in the main crown canopy) by mean stand dbh (the tree of average basal area).

The so-called A-line represented maximum stocking, the B-line represented minimum stocking for full site. Data from 78 plantations in the southern Appalachian Mountains of Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia were used to develop models for estimation of survival, basal area, and yields of cubic and board feet as functions of stand age, site quality, and stocking.

Stand structure and volume yields were strongly related to stand age and site quality. Optimum Stocking of White Pine: It All Depends!. Low-Density management of white pine crop trees: A primer and short-term research results.

The knotty look or Eastern White Pine makes it perfect for pine paneling, siding, sheds, gazebos, fences, and other outdoor home uses. For outdoor uses most home owners are looking for an easily workable wood that has the traditional New England outdoor look, at a good price, hence the use of pine.

Yields of Eastern white pine in New England Related to Age, Site, and Stocking.The Eastern White Pine tree (Pinus strobus) is a hardy evergreen native to eastern North America.

It is long-lived, fast-growing and vigorous. One of our most magnificent forest pine trees, Eastern White Pine has a lot to offer. When young, it presents an elegant, pyramidal form that matures into a tree with beautiful horizontal layered branching.If your tree is a white pine, it is close to 50 years old and thrives in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9.
