Pinus banksiana

Common name: Jack Pine

Native plant

A good choice for poor, dry sandy soils with loads of sun and no protection. It is seen growing on dunes off the lake with winds and temperatures that would give me nightmares. It cannot handle poorly drained sites or heavy clay soils. Some people have told me that this is the go-to-heck pine, and it does tend to be aesthetically challenged. I happen to like the asymmetric look and the personality that the branching lends this plant.
