The Eastern White Pine grows almost everywhere in the eastern United States into the midwest. It is hardy in USDA zones 3 – 8, which covers a huge portion of the United States. It isn’t picky about soil and will grow in sandy soils and heavy clay soils equally well. It is also practically maintenance-free. The only major maintenance is limbing-up after several years of growth. Unlike some evergreen plants, Eastern White Pine has few pest and disease problems. If you’ve had problems with Leyland Cypress in your yard, this plant is a great replacement. Possibly the best feature of this evergreen is that deer don’t favor the taste. What’s the point in planting a beautiful evergreen if you have to cover it up with burlap or deer netting every winter? Eastern White Pine does just fine without those ugly protections. Because of its ease of care and maintenance, Eastern White Pine is a perfect choice for any homeowner who needs a fast-growing evergreen tree for privacy. Arborvitae Green Giant can be used as a screening buffer for privacy, or as a bold focal point when planted as a specimen due to the bright green coloring of the foliage. Eastern White Pine trees make a great windbreak, standing up to the strongest of winter winds. Wind breaks are a perfect way to reduce your heating bills in the winter time by blocking the cold winds that sneak into the house and create a chilly environment. They can also be used to block the low setting sun which tends due to the low angle in the evenings heat up the outer walls of homes and comes through the windows and raises the temperature in a room quickly. When creating a wind break or privacy hedge its important to know how far apart to space your plants. Eastern White Pine trees can be planted as close as 10 feet apart and as far apart as 15 to 18 feet. How soon you want privacy is the major concern when deciding how close to plant you newly purchased trees. Obviously planting them closer together will reach the privacy goal faster. An even better method of creating a privacy hedge which can also act as a sound buffer is to plant in a staggered row. Basically you plant one row of trees and then plant another row 6 to 8 feet in front of the first row filling in the gaps between the plants. This method creates instant privacy and will virtually eliminate unwanted sounds once it fills in.
