Jack Pine


Pinus banksiana
Bundle of 25
5-12″ 2-0 Seedling


Jack Pine has the shortest needles of the pine varieties, occurring in pairs that fork out like jackrabbit ears. Rapid growth rate at first then slows until it reaches a mature height of 30—80 feet. Seedlings need direct sun and do not tolerate shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soils. They can tolerate sandy soils with low nutrient levels and little organic matter. Though often portrayed as small, scraggly, and short-lived, specimens in favorable conditions can reach 100 feet tall and are known to have lived over 200 years. Fair to good wildlife value for birds. Do not plant near power lines.
