Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata', commonly known as the Columnar Eastern White Pine or Fastigiate White Pine, is a unique cultivar of the Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus) species. This elegant and slender evergreen conifer is native to North America and is prized for its distinctive, narrow, columnar growth habit, which sets it apart from the more common, wider-spreading form of the species. With its tall, upright branches and dense foliage, Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata' creates a strong vertical element in any landscape, making it an ideal choice for gardens and urban spaces where space is limited.

The Fastigiate White Pine can reach heights of 30 to 50 feet, with a narrow spread of just 10 to 12 feet. Its needles are soft, long, and bluish-green, arranged in bundles of five. These needles give the tree a fine-textured, feathery appearance that is both graceful and eye-catching. The bark of the tree is smooth and grayish-brown when young, becoming darker and more furrowed as it matures. The tree produces small, slender, cylindrical cones that are 4 to 8 inches long, which can persist on the branches for several years.

One of the key features of Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata' is its adaptability. It is a hardy and resilient tree, capable of thriving in a wide range of soil types and pH levels, although it prefers well-draining, sandy loam soils. The tree has a moderate tolerance for salt, making it suitable for coastal areas, and can also withstand cold temperatures.

Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata' is relatively low-maintenance, requiring minimal pruning to maintain its shape. It is generally pest-resistant, but can be susceptible to white pine weevil, white pine blister rust, and root rot if grown in poorly draining soils. The tree is also deer-resistant, which is an added advantage for those looking to create a wildlife-friendly garden.

The Fastigiate White Pine is a versatile and attractive tree, suitable for use as a specimen, screen, or windbreak. Its narrow, columnar form makes it an excellent choice for planting in tight spaces, and its year-round beauty adds interest and texture to any landscape. Overall, Pinus strobus 'Fastigiata' is a remarkable cultivar that offers a unique and elegant alternative to the traditional Eastern White Pine, providing a striking focal point in gardens and urban environments alike.
