Pinus strobus L.
- The biggest eastern conifer (a tree a with cones) that can reach up to 30 to 35 m and 1 m in diameter. White Pines have long needles straight and flexible, of variable length (5-15 cms) but always with needles (leaves that remain on the tree in winter) in groups of 5. Easy to remember because there are 5 letters in the word white.
