Red Pine


Red Pine (Pinus resinosa)

Red Pine occurs mainly in three separate areas in PEI. These areas are around Murray River, Fort Agustus and New London. It’s best development occurs on deep loamy sand or gravel, but will grow on a great variety of sites. Here, it grows in pure stands also mixed with spruce and balsam fir. It attains a height of 60 feet with a diameter of 1 1/2 feet. The wood is darker, stronger and heavier than white pine and is therefore more valuable as structural timbers. Cresote readily penetrates the thick sapwood and is used for poles and piling.
