Description: This is an upright form of White Pine that will make a fairly large tree when left alone. However, it grows at a rate no more than half as fast as a regular White Pine and branches quite heavily. Therefore, it is a plant that can make a natural hedge with little or no shearing. The original plant at the University of Connecticut is quite large now but very full, dense, and impossible to see through. At a size when a regular White Pine would be thinning out, this one continues to stay full right down to the ground.
