There are about 35 species of pine tree found throughout North America, especially in the northern areas. A number of foreign trees, such as Scots pine and Austrian pine, have also been introduced into the United States for commercial and ornamental purposes. All pine trees are evergreens with long, needle-shaped leaves, and the female flowers of the tree are called cones. Depending on the type, which affects the shape and durability of the tree, pines have a variety of commercial uses, including furniture and landscaping. The second website below lists all types of pine, with pictures.
Pine tree species can grow to various sizes. For example, one of the smallest species is the Siberian dwarf pine, while one of the grandest is the sugar pine. The Eastern white pine grows to tall heights, it’s a five-needled pine, and its needles form in a brush-like clump. The red pine is a two-needled pine with light-red colored wood. The longleaf pine, as you might expect, is characterized by extremely long needles that can grow up to 18 inches!
