Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda)


Plant Family: Pine (Pinaceae)
Project BudBurst Plant Group: Conifers

Identification Hints: Loblolly pines are common trees in the southeastern United States and are sometimes referred to assouthern yellow pines. Loblolly means "low, wet place," however you can find these trees in uplands as well as lowlands. These trees can grow to 115 feet in height. An interesting feature of Loblolly pines is that they often retain their needles for up to two years.

Did you Know? Loblolly pines are often used in plantation forestry as they are valued as timber and pulpwood. Loblolly pines don't begin to produce cones until they are about 12 to 18 years old. They produce 3-5 times as many seeds when they are 40 year old trees as when they are 25 year old trees.

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!
