Statewide, but mostly south Alabama


Pinus palustris, the Southern Longleaf Pine, is Alabama's official state tree. It has the largest pine cone of any pine tree in the eastern United States. It can grow to be 100 feet tall, and its wood is often used for poles or tapped for turpentine and resin. Can you find the longleaf pines growing on the Archives lawn?
