These days people are staying in their homes longer than ever. As a result, they tend to make lots of home improvements over the years. One of the areas that people often overlook when making home improvements is their landscaping needs. One way of keeping, and even improving the value of one's property, is to have an adequately landscaped yard. Most people would agree that a pine tree in the front yard is a lovely sight. The following trees are among the most popular.

One of the more predominant pines found on the East Coast of the United States is the  white pine tree. This is a hearty tree that can be grown anywhere in the country. It is an excellent shade tree and would look lovely in any yard. A younger white pine tree is often used by folks as a Christmas tree. They can withstand high wind speeds and protect homes and buildings from damaging winds and hail also.

Another favorite tree that is used in landscaping is the loblolly pine. These trees are native to the Southern United States. The loblolly pine has the distinction of being a very fast growing pine tree. This is an advantage to the homeowner that wants a quick maturing tree.
