Immediate shipping. One quart pot, approximately 24-30" tall It is occasionally known as simply White Pine, Northern White Pine, or Soft Pine. It is also known as Weymouth Pine,[1] especially in Britain. In addition, this tree is known to the Haudenosaunee Native Americans as the Tree of Peace. Beginning with the British colonists, Eastern white pine has proven to be one of the most important and desirable tree species in North America. It is a truly magnificent tree, attaining heights of 80 feet or more at maturity, with a diameter of two to three feet. Thus, white pine is considered to be the largest of all pine species found in the United States. Until about 1890, it was considered the tree of choice for most commercial uses. In 1761, England claimed all white pines 24 inches in diameter and larger for ship masts for their naval fleet, and required the colonists to obtain licenses to cut any of these trees. The pines were identified by blazing a broad arrow on the trunk. Because of the colonists' general dislike of British rule, this "broad arrow" policy was one more source of friction between the two.
