Pine Trees Make Excellent Living Fences
Whether standing alone in majestic solitude or clustered in a stately phalanx, pine trees can’t fail to make a statement. And given their adaptability to a variety of soil types and climates (not to mention the stunning varieties on offer) pine trees are an ideal option when it comes to selecting trees for a living fence.
Take the Virginia pine, for example. One of the best known of the southern yellow pines, the Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana) thrives in average soil and does well even where soils are deficient. Its pleasing form (the Virginia pine is a favorite for Christmas trees) and its moderate height make it useful as a practical, attractive living fence option.
Pine Trees -Another excellent choice for a living fence is the Loblolly Pine Trees (Pinus taeda), another of the southern yellow pine varieties.
The Loblolly likes its soil moist, so well deserves consideration for a lowland area. As one of the fastest growing of the pines, the Loblolly pine tree will function well in a fence designed to prevent soil erosion.
Unlike the southern yellow pines, white pine trees (Pinus strobus) are native to colder climates, forming some of NE America’s most iconic old-growth forest reserves. White pine trees thrive in colder climates where the soil is well-drained and fertile, but will readily tolerate damper ground. If you select white pine for your living fence, you can look forward to enjoying them for a very long time: some individual trees in the US Midwest are five hundred years old!
The Jeffrey pine, otherwise known as the yellow pine tree (Pinus jeffreyi), is native to the western USA. This drought-tolerant tree can adapt itself to a variety of soil conditions, making this yellow pine tree variety a perfect candidate for a living fence meant for the dry ground at any altitude.
Uniquely suited to moist soils and tolerant of shade, the Spruce pine (Pinus glabra), with its glossy dark-green needles and slender cones, grows to a medium height and is native to mixed woodlands; This makes the Spruce pine an ideal choice for the living fence containing a variety of evergreen species.
Pine trees are lovely year-round trees that offer color and beauty to any yard or landscape. They are widely known for providing wind protection, especially in the winter months and are often quite hardy trees. Also, Pine trees make excellent border trees, and of course, are cultivated for their use as Christmas Trees all over the world.
