Brief Summary

Pinaceae -- Pine family

    Katherine K. Carter and Albert G. Snow, Jr.

    Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana) has a definite place among  trees of commercial importance in spite of once being considered a "forest  weed" and called scrub pine. Also known as Jersey pine and spruce  pine, it does so well in reforesting abandoned and cutover lands that it  has become a principal source of pulpwood and lumber in the southeast.  Virginia pine is commonly a small or medium-sized tree but a record tree  has been measured with 81 cm (31.8 in) in d.b.h. and 34.7 m (114 ft) in  height.
