Large, fast-growing evergreen tree, ranging from 80 to 150 feet tall, with a 20 to 40-foot spread at maturity. Due to its sheer size and endless amount of needles the Eastern White Pine is a fantastic source of shelter for wild birds, many of whom regularly nest in the tree. Eastern White Pine cones also provide seeds that several forest dwelling birds appear to favor.
