Loblolly Pine

 

This is a beautiful Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) located between the Elms building and the Chesapeake Bay. Pine trees are evergreens because they remain green all year long. Unlike deciduous trees that lose their leaves in the fall. The needles of Loblolly pine trees last two years. They gradually fall off during the fall and winter and new ones grow back. In addition, they can lose needles in times of drought.
