Eastern White Pine

(Pinus strobus)

The Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus), designated as the official state tree of Maine, is an iconic symbol of the state's rich natural heritage. This majestic coniferous tree, known for its towering stature, can reach heights of over 150 feet and is characterized by its soft, flexible needles grouped in bundles of five. The Eastern White Pine played a significant role in Maine's history, particularly during the colonial era when its timber was highly valued for shipbuilding. This versatile tree not only contributed to the state's economic prosperity but also symbolizes the enduring strength and resilience of Maine's forests, making it a fitting choice for the state's official tree.
