Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus)


Also Known As: White pine, Northern white pine, Soft pine
Plant Family: Pine (Pinacae)
Project BudBurst Plant Group: Conifers

Identification Hints: White pines are distinct in having needles in clusters of 5 that are about 5 inches long. Pinyon pines can also have 5 needles but have shorter stiffer needles and rigid cone scales. Eastern white pine is distinct in having slender needles, and long cones with thin flexible scales. It is very similar to western white pine, but has smaller cones averaging 12 cm (5 in) as contrasted with western white pine which has cones almost twice as large 24 cm (10 in). Both are common ornamentals.

Did you Know? During the age of sail, eastern white pine was valued for masts. In colonial times, many trees were marked with a broad arrow reserving them for use by the British Royal Navy. Today, wood from the eastern white pine is used for cabinets, toys, boxes, and similar items. It is frequently used for windbreaks.

The table below displays all the data that has been submitted to Project BudBurst. By default, the data is sorted by the date on which the phenophase occurred. Clicking the up and down arrows next to each column name allows you to sort on any value. If there have been more than 10 observations submitted, you can choose how many to display at a time using the "Show __ entries" control. You can also page through the data using the previous and next buttons at the bottom right of the table.

The Search box allows you to search all of the data. Searching by date, species, phenophase, etc. is easy—just start typing and the table will immediately change to contain only observations that contain your search phrase. Do you want to see only 2012 observations? Just type "2012" in the search box. Only want to see maples? Enter "Acer." You can combine searches, too! Searching for "acer 2012" will narrow your results to only the maples that were observed in 2012 (assuming that any observations exist, of course).

Once you have your results in the order desired, you can use any of the buttons above the search box to copy the results to the clipboard; save them as a text, or spreadsheet; or even print them from your browser!
