Pinus Thunbergii: A Successful Exotic on the North Atlantic Coast
Abstract:When an exotic tree fails in American forestry it is taken for granted; but when it does better than the native species in a given situation, it's news. The following account describes an oriental pine which has been used to reforest certain coastal areas in the northeastern states with remarkable success. While this type of planting has been associated mainly with sand stabilization and park development, it has encountered many of the same factors which would be involved in growing trees for any other purpose. Hence the proven adaptability of the species in question is felt to be significant for the forester as well as for the park engineer and the arboriculturist.
