Jack pine (Pinus banksiana) is an eastern North American pine.Its native range in Canada is east of the Rocky Mountains from the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, and the north-central and northeast of the United States from Minnesota to Maine, with the southernmost part of the range just into northwest Indiana and northwest Pennsylvania. defoliates mature jack pine. The jack pine budworm, native to North America, has a range that coincides almost exactly with jack pine, its preferred host. Root borers, root feeders, shoot and stem borers, leaf feeders, needle miners, and sucking insects affect the survival and growth of seedlings. Many other insects feed on jack pine cones.
Jack pine is very hardy and well suited to northern climates. It can be used in windbreaks, although it is susceptible to ice storm damage and may be difficult to find in nurseries. This species is native to the Chicago Region according to Swink and Wilhelm's Plants of the Chicago Region, with updates made according to current research. Joe Pine is offering all timber within the sale area for sale through his agent, Selling Timber Enterprises (hereafter referred to as “S.T.E.”). The timber sale area supports predominately mature loblolly pine sawtimber, with some mixed pine and hardwood pulpwood, and will be reforested following harvest.Author: Robert Bardon.
In Missouri, jack pine is most commonly seen in landscape plantings as an ornamental or planted as a windbreak. It is native to forests of the northeastern United States and Canada, where it is an important source of pulpwood and lumber. Between 19a series of 12 experimental fires, each 0.4 ha in size, was conducted in a mature jack pine (Pinusbanksiana Lamb.) stand (1899 origin) in north central Ontario.The fires were carried out under a broad range of burning conditions to gather quantitative fire behavior data for forest fire management purposes.Cited by: 179.
The jack pine (Pinus banksiana) is a native of the Lake states, the northern New England states and much of Canada. It has been planted widely in Iowa, but is a less desirable tree than many of the other pines. It will survive on the driest soils in the state, and makes rapid growth during the first 10 to 15 years. It is a rather small tree, reaching a height of 40 to 60 feet. Kirtland's warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii), also known as the jack pine warbler, is a small songbird of the New World warbler family (), named after Jared P. Kirtland, an Ohio doctor and amateur naturalist. Nearly extinct just 50 years ago, it is well on its way to recovery. It requires large areas, greater than 160 acres (65 hectares), of dense young jack pine for its breeding habitat.Class: Aves.
