Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda) is commonly found in the Southeastern region of the United States, stretching west to central Texas, east to the Atlantic Ocean, as far south as Florida and to northern Delaware and New Jersey.
Loblolly pines can be found in several settings and situations.
One may find loblolly planted in old fields and upland sites, but they thrive in bottomland sites.
The word “loblolly” stems from an old-time word that colloquially meant “mudhole”. This gives a clue into the type of environment/situation that a loblolly pine thrives in, which are bottomland sites (river bottoms) which is where loblolly pines are naturally found.
It features a large column-like trunk (hence one of its nicknames, “bull”), pale-green needles, and an eye-catching reddish-brown bark.
Its wood is used for lumber, plywood, 2×4s, and various other similar uses.
It also provides shelter for several southeastern birds such as Carolina chickadees, wild turkeys, and northern bobwhites. It also provides seeds that are usually consumed by small rodents such as squirrels and chipmunks.
Loblolly trees are not usually mature until they reach the ages of 100-150 years old. They grow at a rate of about 2’ per year, making them one of the faster-growing trees out there. When fully mature, the loblolly pine features a lovely oval shape.
Loblolly pines can add a classic look to any landscape if space is provided. It’s overall shape, pine needles and cones add a splash of life to any plot of land, and landowners and planters will not regret it’s addition as it retains its beauty throughout the calendar year.
