Spruce Pine is found in river bottoms, frequently shady, from South Carolina to Louisiana. As the trunk matures it is easily identified by the attractive finely textured bark that resembles that of a Spruce tree and eventually becomes oak-like. Spruce pine is more shade tolerant than most pines and also tends to hold its lower foliage longer than many pines making it a good choice as a screening plant.
