Pinus serotina, also known as Pond Pine, Marsh Pine, or Pocosin Pine, is a tree found throughout the southeastern Atlantic coastal plain of the United States. This tree can grow up to 21 meters tall and has a unique, crooked growth pattern and irregular top. Its needles are 15-20cm long and grow in bundles of three or four. The cones are small and round, requiring fire to open and release seeds. Pond Pine is found in wet habitats near ponds, bays, swamps, and pocosins, and is a major species in the forest cover type Pond Pine. The climate in its range is mild and humid, making it an ideal tree for this region. Red heart disease, a white rot fungus that affects the value of the wood, is a serious issue for pond pine. This unique tree is a beautiful addition to any landscape and a valuable part of the ecosystem.
