This widespread and widely planted tree grows quickly on a variety of dry to wet soils. Virgin stands of this long-lived tree (to 450 years) once covered New England. Its soft wood is exceptionally useful for construction, and it is also sometimes used as a Christmas tree. It provides important winter habitat for songbirds such as chickadees, pine warblers, and pine grosbeaks.
