White Pine

Tree Description:

0-005  The white pine (Pinus strobus) you see on this hillside was one of several purchased from Phoenix Nursery in Bloomington and planted in 1862 according to the minutes of the Oak Ridge Board of managers. The tree developed a broom mutation at its top from a lightning strike. The broom, since lost to a tornado, was propagated and gave us the dwarf cultivar Pinus strobus ‘Phoenix’.
