With a growth rate of up to 3 ft. per year, the Eastern White Pine will be a striking addition in any landscaping in just a couple of years. This fast-growing conifer can be identified by its soft green needles and straight trunk. For a fuller tree at maturity, lightly prune the tree during the first 2-3 years. Although it will thrive in partial shade, full sun conditions promote faster growth. This tree will not tolerate wet, swampy conditions.
