Pinus subgenus Strobus has needles like all other members of the white pine group, which appear in fascicles (bundles) of 5, or occasionally 3 or 4, with a deciduous sheath. The leaves are flexible, have a bluish-green color, are slightly serrated, and are around 5–13 cm (2–5 in in length). For 18 months (one season to the next), the fascicle sheaths remain until abscising.
The seed cones are around 8 to 16 cm (3 to 6 inches) long and 4 to 5 cm (1 1/2 to 2 inches) wide when open, and have scales with a rounded tip and a somewhat curled shape. They are typically covered with resin. A little under 5 mm (5⁄32 inches) length with a long 15–20 mm (5⁄8 to 3⁄4 inches) wing, the seeds are carried away by the wind. Cone output will typically reach its maximum 3-5 years after that.
White pine, a long-lived tree, may reach ages of up to around 450 years if not disturbed. The species' growth rate is exceptionally high when compared to other types of pines and hardwoods within its area (20).
In the nearctic temperate broadleaf and mixed woods biome of eastern North America, the Pinus strobus tree species is commonly found. In general, it is found in well-drained or sandy soils, although it may also grow in wet or swampy locations as well. The dominating tree towers above other trees in mixed forest settings, including numerous giant broadleaf hardwoods. By providing food and shelter for a wide variety of forest birds such as the red crossbill, and a range of smaller animals, such squirrels, the habitat helps sustain wildlife populations.
Because pine trees require a lot of sunlight to grow, young seedlings are rarely found deep within the forest. Pines, on the other hand, prefer to colonize fire sites and disturbed areas where they can absorb the sun's rays. Some pines, such as white pine, can grow in partial shade, but the majority of pines are shade intolerant.

Pines are widely known as an important part of our planet's ecosystem. They are economically significant due to their reliance on the timber trade, and because of this, they are easily identifiable. The family of 250 woody, seed-producing trees known as pines consists of both eastern and western varieties.
