Pinus strobus ‘Stowe Pillar’ – Eastern White Pine – 10-Gallon


A columnar form of eastern white pine — it’s a bit narrower than the more commonly available ‘Fastigiata’. It’s tight branching makes it more resistant than the species to breaking under heavy, wet snow load. Ideal for tight spaces or as a vertical element that is less dense or rigid than the junipers or Chamaecyparis cultivars that often serve that purpose. After 10 years of growth, ‘Stowe Pillar’ will be about 8 to 12 feet tall and 1/3 as wide, with an annual growth rate of around 12 inches. ‘Stowe Pillar’ was found growing as a witches’ broom on a wild tree by Greg Williams of Kate Brook Nursery, Wolcott, Vermont, not far from the well-known ski resort, Stowe Mountain.
