Pinus glabra, Spruce Pine Trees
This tree is known for its conical shape. There is a tree in Sweeden called Old Tjikko that is thought to be the oldest living tree on planet Earth. This tree's timber is excellent for use in a building. Some guitars have this wood used to make them. The pinewood is one of the most important for making paper.
The Spruce Pine is found in the lower southeastern United States.
This tree thrives in the warm temperate climate where the summers are lengthy, hot and humid and the winters are mild. It is most often found along river beds and swamps of the southern Coastal Plains. The Spruce Pine is more susceptible to fire than other conifers and does not regenerate well after forest fires. Its shade tolerance allows it to be dominated by other trees such as the Magnolia and Liquidambar and is rarely dominate unless it reaches through an opening in the canopy.
