Pinus palustris (Longleaf Pine)
Pinus palustris (Longleaf Pine) is an evergreen conifer with the longest leaves of the eastern pine species, earning it its common name. The needle-like leaves, which occur in three-leaf bundles, can reach a length of 18 inches. Mature trees can reach a height of 80 to 100 feet. The solitary trunk may grow up to three feet (0.9 meters) in diameter and is coated in thick, scaly bark. The trees' lowest branches are pruned organically, and they grow almost perfectly straight.
