Jack Pine


Jack Pine (Pinus banksiana)

Jack pine is confined to small scattered patches in the province, espically around East Bideford.

Being out of its range, it is stunted and inclined to be quite branchy with a crooked trunk. It grows up to 40 feet in height and around 8 inches in diameter with a narrow, open crown of many short, twisted branches.

It does not grow in pure stands in this province but is mixed with black spruce.
