    Some of the earliest successful forest plantations in the United States were those of eastern white pine (Pinus strobus) established about 1900 on the Biltmore Estate near Asheville, North Carolina. Since that time white pine has played an increasingly important role in reforestation in the southern Appalachians. Growth is rapid, the wood is valuable, and white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola) and white pine weevil (Pissodes strobi) are less common than in the northern part of the range.
