DescriptionPines that occur naturally in parts of the region, as well as those that do not, have been introduced throughout. Pines usually produce greater volumes of wood faster than hardwoods, but in many parts of the region there is no market for pine stumpage or logs. Aside from wood production, pines are established for Christmas trees, windbreaks, landscaping, erosion control, and habitat diversity. Often a rotation of pine will build up a poor old field site so that it will once again support quality hardwoods.
