The Virginia pine tree is known for its rugged growth pattern
If you are a Christmas tree enthusiast, you have probably seen a Virginia pine tree. Other people call it the Jersey pine, the spruce pine, or the scrub pine. It is a popular choice for Christmas trees because of its low branches. This evergreen tends to do well in eroded and dry soil. Notably, it is smaller than other pines – it only grows to around 15-40 feet tall and 8-14 inches wide. It is also worth mentioning that its long fibers are a good source of wood pulp.
