Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda) is commonly found in the Southeastern region of the United States, stretching west to central Texas, east to the Atlantic Ocean, as far south as Florida and to the north Delaware and New Jersey.

They can be found in a number of settings and situations. One may find them planted in old fields and upland sites, but they thrive in bottomland sites.

The Loblolly Pine Tree Loves Swampy Land

The word “loblolly” stems from an old-time word which colloquially meant “mudhole”. This gives a clue into the type of environment/situation that they thrive in, which are bottomland sites (river bottoms) which is where they are naturally found.

It features a large column-like trunk (hence one of it’s nicknames, “bull”), pale-green needles and an eye-catching reddish-brown bark.

Birds Love The Loblolly Pine Tree

It’s wood is used for lumber, plywood, 2×4s and various other similar uses. It also provides shelter for a number of southeastern birds such as Carolina chickadees, wild turkeys and northern bobwhites. It also provides seeds which are usually taken by small rodents such as squirrels and chipmunks.

They are not usually mature until they reach the ages of 100-150 years old. They grow at a rate of about 2’ per year, making them one of the faster growing trees out there. When fully mature, the tree features a lovely oval shape.
