TREE TUESDAY -Planting White Pine Seeds

2 Comments

White Pine in a pot

One of our pilots this year is grow some trees from seeds.
One the native trees we selected is the great Eastern White Pine.
Nothing yet but it’s only been 5 days since we planted them.

We also have Black Maples, Redbuds and Black Cherry seeds.  Our goals include:

  1. seeing if we could raise some native trees from seeds
  2. connect with interested Hamiltonians to plant the treelings on their properties and to  get more trees into our neighbourhoods.

We’ll keep you posted with our pilot.

  1. White Pine is unfortunately a very poor choice for areas where streets and sidewalk are treated with salt.

    • We totally agree, White Pines are well known for their disdain of salt. Our goal with our pilot is to have the trees planted in backyards (ie privately owned properties), versus planting along streets / heavy traffic areas.
      Thanks Howard for your comment and for reading our blog. Much appreciated!
