A member of the Southern Yellow Pine family of trees, this is the most widely seen pine in much of the Southeastern U.S.
The Shortleaf Pine in its natural habitat is found in 22 states from the Northeast to the Central Plains and Southeast. The Shortleaf Pine is capable of growing in many different types of environments and will tolerate colder soil temperatures than many of the other trees in the family.
The Shortleaf Pine Tree is capable of growing in a range of soil types and does not being to produce seeds or fruit until it matures around the age of 12.
This tree is well known for its ability to produce an attractive crown at its top that does not produce a large amount of width. The short limbs of the Shortleaf Pine are topped by attractive cones each Spring to early Summer. The production of fruit is an important part of the process of producing more Shortleaf Pine Trees with the female version of the flower being brown and the male a deeper purple color.
This is an evergreen tree that does not produce leaves but has several flexible pines clustered in two and three from a single sprout. An important tree for the lumber industry, the Shortleaf Pine is often characterized as scaly and dark across its trunk when young. As the tree grows older and matures, it produces a smoother appearance that gives way to a yellow-light brown wood beneath when the outer layer is removed. The ease of growth of the SHortleaf Pine is one of the main reasons for its success across the southern portions of the U.S.
