A gardening website has published an article with information on scotch pines. The article describes the tree. It is an evergreen plant that originated in Europe and grew across much of North America. It grows to a height of forty to fifty feet. It can be planted in most parts of the USA and Canada. It grows in most types of soil. The article recommends against planting in the Midwest due to nematodes. It is good for reclamation projects.
- These trees are a good choice for site reclamation because they can survive in areas that most other plant life cannot.
- They are hardy, and will grow throughout most zones in the U.S.A and Canada.
- The trees are susceptible to the pine wilt nematode, which can be a problem for those in the Mid-west region.
“If grown in suitable conditions, caring for a Scotch pine tree in the home landscape requires little, if any, maintenance.”
