Description

The Loblolly Pine tree is a tall growing coniferous evergreen that can be found in more temperate regions of the United States. Loblolly pines are fasting growing trees that mature to between 60 ft. to 80 ft. tall with a spread of 25 ft. - 35 ft. W.

Because of it's quick growth rate, in its early stages of growth it can make a great screen before it starts shedding lower branches. It features attractive cinnamon brown bark that scales from the trunk and branches. Loblolly pines have a dark green color to their evergreen needles that are about 2 in. to 4 in. length. As the tree matures it provides shelter for birds. In the early fall they produce reddish-brown pine cones.

The seeds of the pine are a favorite snack of squirrels and chipmunks. This tree is a treasure for the wildlife in your area. This pine tree is hardy in USDA Zones 6-9 and can tolerate most soils. Plant in full sun for best results. It works well planted in mass or as a feature. Water regularly after planting.

Loblolly Pine Tree Care

  • Hardy from USDA Zones 7-9.
  • Plant in Full Sun to Part Shade for best results.
  • Loblolly pine trees are tolerant of most soil types, even clay.
  • Water 2-3 times per week after planting. This will help it to develop deep roots and allow it to support rapid growth.
  • Fertilize new plantings in early spring with a balanced nitrogen-rich fertilizer to promote new growth.

Disclaimers:

If your tree is over 46" inches tall at the time of shipping, we will have to trim it to fit into our boxes.

Customers Outside of the Southeastern United States: Shipping these trees over long distances during the Summer is not recommended, please wait to order during Fall to Early Spring for best results.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations
