Three Common North American Pine Trees

  1. Eastern White Pine

The Eastern White Pine is the state tree of both Maine and Michigan. As one of the tallest conifers in eastern North America, this tree was used extensively in the past to construct masts for large sailing ships. Newer cut pine has a creamy white color, but aged it can develop a much deeper shade.


  1. Yellow Pine

This tree is primarily found in the southeastern United States and is the second most common species of tree in the country.

  1. Western White Pine

Primarily used for molding and trimming, this tree can be found in the mountains of the western United States, especially in California’s Sierry Nevada mountains.

Pine is a wonderful wood full of character. For quality hand built pine furniture visit Dick’s Wood Creations.
