[Nelson F Rogers; Kenneth A Brinkman; Central States Forest Experiment Station (Columbus, Ohio)]. Similar species: Missouri has only one native pine species, the shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata).

The other five pines included in our flora are nonnative species that are commonly planted in timber plantations, for wildlife habitat, for erosion control, or as ornamentals.

Shortleaf pines have been called Southern yellow pine, short straw pine, yellow pine, old field pine, Long tag pine, Spruce pine, and Arkansas pine.

Native to 21 Southeastern states, shortleaf pine trees thrive from Southern New York to Northern Florida, west as far as Oklahoma and Missouri, and southwest as far as eastern Texas.5/5(5). An evergreen native conifer, Shortleaf pine has the widest distribution of any southeastern pine species.

It commonly attains feet in height and 2 to 3 feet in diameter. A straight single trunk supports a narrow, conical to pyramidal or flat topped crown. Shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata) has the widest geographic range of the southern pines (MattoonLawson and Kitchens ).

Shortleaf pine was once one of the dominate pine species in the southern United States, prior to the planting of loblolly pine plantations and fire control programs.

The species ranges from southern New Jersey to Florida and west to Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri. Using tree-ring data collected at the Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP), we provide a long-term perspective of shortleaf pine growth, climate response, and regeneration.
