This native tree grows in coastal landscapes on the East Coast. It needs fire to regenerate, which is one reason why it’s historical range has shrunk significantly as a result of fire suppression. It is special for creating important habitat for threatened and endangered species like gopher tortoise and the red cockaded woodpecker. It’s known for its long needles (up to 18 inches) and large cones (up to 10 inches). It can live for well over 100 years.
