The loblobby pine, or Pinus taeda, is a fast-growing pine tree that adapts well to a wide variety of soil types.
It is most commonly referred to as the loblobby pine but is also referred to as the rosemary pine, old field pine, bull pine, Indian pine, or long straw pine. It is drought tolerant, not needing much precipitation to thrive. It is a fragrant species of pine, which is where it got its nickname "rosemary pine". It was once popular for its use as a lumber tree because of its widespread growth. It is native throughout many areas of the United States and provides food and shelter for many native species of animals, ranging from birds to rodents. It produces dry pinecones that are three to six inches in size.
Loblobby pine seedlings are resilient, as they can grow in a wide variety of conditions.
They can withstand drought and flooding. They need sun for at least six hours a day to thrive but can grow in many different soil types. These seedlings are easily transplanted and are extremely versatile. By purchasing loblobby pine seedlings you are helping to regerminate our forests which are an essential part of the natural American ecosystem. As an evergreen, your loblobby pine tree will display beautiful green pine needles year-round.
The best way to plant loblobby pine seedlings is to sow a few seeds together with no more than 1/4 inch of soil coverage. Water the soil frequently to saturation. Although a mature loblobby pine will not discriminate between soil types, moist soil is essential in promoting the growth of any plant.
