  1. Pinus rigida

    Pinus rigida, the Pitch Pine, is a small-to-medium sized pine, native to eastern North America. This species occasionally hybridizes with other pine species such as Loblolly Pine, Shortleaf Pine, and Pond Pine; the last is treated as a subspecies of Pitch Pine by some botanists. The Pitch Pine is found mainly in the northeastern United States, from Maine and Ohio to Kentucky and northern Georgia. A few stands occur in southern Quebec and Ontario. This pine occupies a variety of habitats from dry, acidic sandy uplands to swampy lowlands, and can survive in very poor conditions; it is the primary tree of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. The needles are in fascicles of three, about 6–13 cm in length, and are stout and often slightly twisted. The cones are 4–7 cm long and oval with prickles on the scales. Unusual for pines, if the main trunk is cut or damaged by fire it can re-sprout using epicormic shoots. This is one of its many adaptations to fire, which also includes a thick bark to protect the sensitive cambium layer from heat. Burnt trees often form stunted, twisted trees with multiple trunks as a result of the resprouting. This characteristic also makes it a popular species for bonsai.
