Scots Pine

Many soil locations are very light land.  While spruce do well on light land, they do require that light land to be moist.  However, Scots Pine seem to thrive and grow quickly (once established) with less water than spruce.  There is a farm west of our farm where the pine have seeded themselves onto the pasture and these pine are growing everywhere.  Absolutley beautiful.  Pine grow 2 times faster than spruce.
