You can tell it is a long leaf pine because the needles are in bunches of three and grow from 8 to 15 inches long. That’s how big I was when I got here. The pine cones are about 6 to 8 inches long. They say the wood is good for timber because it is straight with few knots. They even use it to build ships. Mom says they even use the sticky stuff that gets on me for gum turpentine and resin production, whatever that is. I just know that these trees are everywhere. People actually have farms for these trees and sell the pine needles for mulch so that people can make their yards look pretty.
If you would like to have a pretty yard here please be sure to call my dad, Allan Nanney, at 910-528-1181 or visit his website at http://www.YourPinehurstHome.com .
