Eastern White Pine
« on: January 23, 2013, 02:31:23 PM »
Good day gents ..

Glad to be here. wealth of knowledge here.. I live in western part of Va on 150 acres of old family land. My great grand fathers steam powered mill remenants are still in the woods. I managed to salvage the Governor and blade off of it. :)
I say that to say this, my place is full of mature Eastern White Pines, by mature I mean 24 to 32"  butts and STRAIGHT as an arrow.

Suggestions please???

Well, I would say unless you have some sort of financial or material needs, let them stand tall!  A white pine has a life span up to a couple hundred years. If you don't have some dire need, perhaps one day your grandson can stand and look at those same trees.

And find the rest of the old mill and get it ready to do some serious white pine sawing.  ;D

This used to be a 200 acre field where we had a dairy farm.  Planted when I was about 19 years ago. First thinning taking place now.  When I thin them for the last time I will leave the remaining trees until I absolutely need the money.

Suggestions please???

Here's a good place to start. A lot of good information in the silvics manual:

Google white pine silviculture, there are dozens of research papers that may allow you to better understand the establishment and growth characteristics of the species. A local forester may be able to give you some suggestions that may be specific to your region.
