Pinus virginiana or Virginia Pine is a needled evergreen that is native to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘Scrub Pine’ or ‘Jersey Pine’. Its nickname is 'Wate's Golden' and can be found as far east as Long Island, NY, as far west as Tennessee, and as far south as Alabama. The tree does best in medium, well-drained soil, with a preference for clay or sandy loams. However, the plant can tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions including heavy clay.

Virginia Pine Is Very Hardy

It requires full sun and ideally planted in Zones 4-8, with a need for little maintenance. It can reach between 15 and 30 feet when mature. It is recommended multiple of these trees be planted 15 to 30 feet apart. The needles usually are 1-3 inches long in bundles of two and turn bright gold in colder winters, similar to the color of a school bus. Its branches grow in a pyramid type shape that becomes either a rounded or flat-topped crown. It’s spiny-scaled cones grow to about 3 inches long.

Virginia Pine Is Deer Resistant

Pinus virginiana has some susceptibility to pitch canker, a fungus that causes tree death, reduced growth, and degradation of wood quality, but otherwise has no serious insect or disease issue. It is resistant to deer.

Virginia Pine Has Strong Wood

The tree is easily sculpted and a good selection for a bonsai type garden. It is often used in reforesting efforts, providing nourishment for wildlife, and on Christmas tree farms. It can also be used as wood pulp and lumber. It is not naturally rot-resistant but can be treated with preservatives.

We will see

They showed up quicker than I expected so that was good. Overall they seem to be alright and they sent out few extras. Few have lost all their needles after planting. Being evergreen this is concerning. But allall I think the rest will be ok.
