White pine grows in quite a rapid fashion, approximately 2 to 3 feet per year. The season of spring is considered as the best instant for the plantation of white pine. They thrive in full sun to light shade. From light sandy to heavy textured soil, the seeds can manage in any soil but will flourish in a well-drained loamy soil. At least 20% of the sun exposure is devoted to the seedling to germinate robustly.
White pine cannot be grown indoors as they die because of the limited amount of light and humidity. Though they serve well for ornamental purposes, but for a very short period. They can survive for less than a year if they are provided with the required amount of sunlight, water, temperature, and humidity. White pine prospers zealously in outdoor frames.
The tree can be transplanted while it is dormant i.e. in spring or fall, before the first frost.
White pine seeds take at least two years to germinate. After a prolonged germination, the plant grows promptly and but produces viable seeds after the age of 20 to 30 years.
At such a dragged age, the process of fruitful pollination takes place from April to June. The pollination of white pine occurs by the wind. Fertilization occurs which results in a kind of seed pods, cones that can be either male or female.
Female cone is bigger than a male cone and they grow on the same tree.
