Pearson Creek Unit Species Census

Eastern White Pine -- Pearson Creek

There are currently 40 species and/or subspecies growing at the Lovett Pinetum Pearson Creek Unit. Almost all are natives of North America. Some are tentative because they have survived only two (1997-8 &1998-9) winters. Listings are scientific names followed by common names.

An asterix (*) indicates that the pines are well established, an arrow-up sign (^) indicates established trees with serious problems and a pound sign (#) indicates that the pines have planted within the past 30 months (some with serious zonal denial).
