Twisted Needle White Pine, formally called Pinus Strobus Torulosa, is an evergreen with unique, green-blue ‘twisted’ needles that give this unusual conifer its signature name. The spiraling needles of the White Pine will lend a softer look to your landscape. Torulosa are fast-growing and tall, reaching heights of 40 to 50 feet, with a spread of 40-50 feet. They have a narrow form and sparse branching which, paired with their spindly tufts of needles, gives the tree an airy, fluffy appearance. They produce green female cones that ripen into a golden color as the season progresses.

The easy-to-grow, low-maintenance Twisted Needle is a sustainable way to add interest to any yard of landscape. Native to Newfoundland and the United States, the Twisted Needle White Pine forms a broad upright pyramid with moderately contorted branches that will apply an interesting, sculptural look to your landscape. They are hardy trees and resistant to both verticillium wilt and deer.

Twisted Needle White Pine Care

They thrive in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. The best soil for the Twisted Needle is rich, acidic clay that is well-drained with even moisture. Planting the Twisted Needle in Alkaline soil may lead to yellow needles. This pine is hardy, but should be planted in an area that is sheltered from the wind. They are moderately drought tolerant after being established. They are vulnerable to some pests and diseases, most prominently, needle blight, rust, aphids, and sawflies. Watch your tree for signs of distress.

Twisted Needle does not require heavy pruning, and you should only trim back new growth, rather than cutting into the canopy of the tree. You should also trim away any dead or diseased branches. Pruning should be done in the late fall or early spring before seasonal growth has begun.

Twisted Needle White Pine Care

Twisted Needle White Pine has a wide spread, and should be planted 20 to 30 feet apart. They are beautiful and individual specimen trees, but can also be planted en masse along woodland borders and in coastal areas.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
