DescriptionEastern white pine is the most valuable conifer in the Northeast, and its large botanical range has provided ample opportunity for the development of ecotypes. Provenance plantings in nine states provided information on variability within the species and recommendations for moving seed from one region to another. Good growth was obtained on southern Appalachian sources moved as far north as central Pennsylvania. Needle length, branching habit, cone production, and other characters are discussed.
