Is this tree good for city/urban settings?
We would recommend planting this tree somewhere more rural, since it thrives best in an environment without pollution or compacted soil, and with open spaces for it to grow.
Does this tree attract certain wildlife?
Yes! This tree attracts many animals, from birds to squirrels, and porcupines to snowshoe hares. It is deer and rabbit-resistant, however.
Plant your tree in a spot in your yard that gets at least 4 hours of sun each day. Also choose a place in your yard that has moderate soil that isn't too dry or wet. Then, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate the root ball, place your tree carefully, and back fill the soil.
Place a layer of pine needles or mulch around the base for moisture retention, and be sure the soil is firm after planting. If you can pull the tree out once it is planted, pack the soil more tightly.
Unless you are going through a period of drought, there's no need to water the Eastern White Pine since it is very drought resistant.
Prune your tree in winter or fall, keeping only the branches at the top two-thirds of tree. This will help your tree grow straighter and become more disease-resistant. Immediately prune any diseased branches.
