Pine Trees have been used extensively as shade trees for centuries, and since they are evergreens, pines normally grow during all the seasons, and they survive below zero temperatures during very cold winters, since they are so cold hardy.  The turpentine sap that is contained in the evergreen leaves (pine needles), along with  other chemical compounds that act like an anti-freeze within the pine needles, a cold resistance that is also contained and translated within the bark, twigs and the tree trunk.  The pine needles can persist on the branches during all seasons but shed intermittently each year that is followed by a vigorous surge of new growing needles, usually that are formed in the spring with  a growth flush that is very dramatic, sometimes growing several feet in length in a very short time during the spring.  The longleaf pine tree is perhaps the most famous category of the many species of pine trees.  The long leaf pines have been extensively harvested in building most of the houses in the Southern U.S., and the longleaf pines are very long lived and grow into huge trees.  The slash pine tree is also a very good source of lumber and for making straight poles for mounting signs and utility light poles.  Loblolly pine trees are very fast growing pines and are often used for lumber, landscape use and for privacy fences.  You can order your pines trees in many sizes from Best Price Plants  at any time during the year to be delivered promptly to your home or farm by UPS.

Their wood is used in lumber, and they're found growing from USDA Zones 2-9.
