Eastern White Pine, also known as Pinus strobus, is a large pine that is native to eastern North America, from Newfoundland through the Great Lakes region and Manitoba in Canada, as well as Minnesota, along the Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont to Georgia in the United States. This pine tree is known as Weymouth pine in the United Kingdom, named after George Weymouth, who first brought it to England in 1620. The harvesting of white pine forests in the 19th century played a major role in America’s expansion into the west. A quarter million white pines were harvested in Chicago in a single year alone. The White Pine was found to have aesthetic appeal and contemporary naturist, Henry David Thoreau, claimed, “There is no finer tree.” Eastern White Pine is soft in texture and easily worked. It takes paint better than most other varieties of wood and is adaptable. It is also light weight and easily transported.
