White Pine (pinus strobus) is a large pine species native to the Midwest and Newfoundland. The Menominee forest’s cool, humid climate is ideal for the growth of this deciduous tree. Once extensively logged in its natural habitat, the Menominee Forest represents one of the few remaining old-growth forests containing harvestable levels of white pine. White pine’s straight trunks were often used in the manufacturing of ship masts in the 18th century.
