Pinus virginiana

Virginia pine is commonly a small or medium-sized tree that is useful for reforesting abandoned and cutover lands and is also a source of pulpwood and lumber. However, there are a few record trees that have measured over 100 feet in height. Virginia pine tends to do best in moderately well-drained to well-drained soils and is less tolerant of wet sites and impeded drainage than either pitch or loblolly pines.

 Virginia pine has two needles per bundle, each of which is about
1.5 to 3 inches long.
