Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

If you're looking for a rapidly growing tree that will add visual appeal to your yard, the Pitch Pine is a wonderful choice.
The tree thrives in full sun or partial shade and is suitable for zones 3-9. Pitch pines are drought-resistant, so you won't have to worry about the trees wilting if you live in an area that doesn't get much rain. These pines are also ideal as borders since the lush green leaves add an element of privacy to your property.
Pitch pine trees are deer resistant as well, so your tree will remain intact when deers visit your yard.
This pine tolerates several soil conditions as well, but it's best to keep the soil filled with nutrients and well-drained when possible. The tree has drooping branches that twist around each other, which gives the pine a globe-like shape. The needle-like leaves grow in groups of three.
Pitch pine trees are stiff and yellowish-green in color. The tree also produces pine cones that grow in groups of five or three. The trees grow under 20 feet at maturity, and they keep their leaves all year long, which makes them an attractive addition to your front or backyard. The trees should be planted together to form a hedge. However, it's best to plant them away from other trees and flowers, since they don't compete well with other plants. During the spring and summer, birds like to gather in the trees to make your landscape more enticing. Small mammals like squirrels and chipmunks favor the pitch pine as well and feed on the sprouts and seeds of the tree.
These pines are easy to care for, which makes them perfect for both residential and commercial spaces. The tree can also be used for fuel, certain construction jobs, and pulp. You can also extract pitch from the tree, which is how the pine got its name.
