The Eastern White Pine has needles that are soft bluish-green 3-5 inches long in bundles of 5. The needles remain on the tree for two years. Cones are fully grown in the summer of the second season, opening to discharge seed that autumn. Cones are 4-8 inches long, curved, stalked, with scales, not spiny. On old trunks, the bark is deeply divided into broad ridges that are covered with purplish scales. The tree commonly attains 100 ft in height and 4 ft in diameter. Branches are in definite whorls of long lateral branches sweeping upward in graceful curves.
Garden Club Plant Sale Saturday 2020.04.25 Supporting the TRWA
The Tuckaleechee Garden Club will be participating in the Blount County Garden Club Plant Sale April 25, 2020 at 8:00 am.
Proceeds from the plants and other items sold by the Tuckaleechee Garden Club goes 100% to the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum project. Stop by and purchase some plants, garden items and leave a little extra donation to help support the River Walk.
Your plant purchase helps continue the growth and maintenance of the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum. Some of the projects that are currently scheduled are: Fencing & Arbors for the Pollinator & Memorial Garden, Gravel for the Entries areas to the River Walk, Rack Cards to help promote the River Walk & Arboretum as well as many other smaller projects around the TRWA. The labor is free but it requires some additional funding to keep up with the purchasing of materials to properly maintain the River Walk & Arboretum. Your contributions by purchasing a plant or making a donation goes a long way to keeping the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum an East TN treasure.
