    It is quite common for landowners to have jack pine in their woodlots. It is important for landowners to understand the management and value of this tree species.

    Woodlots, with jack pine, are usually pure but can be a mixed wood of aspen, birch, black and white spruce. Management of a jack pine forest requires many considerations such as biological and ecological characteristics as well as stand health, site quality, and availability of markets, which affects the intensity, timing of harvest operations, and harvesting methods.
     

    How to Grow

    Jack pine can grow in a wide range of soil types from dry, sandy soil to clay loams but can usually be found in dry acidic sandy soil and in thin soils over bedrock. It is a very wind firm tree except in shallow soils or heavily thinned stands. It is a relatively fast growing medium sized tree and normally reaches between 20 and 25 meters tall. It will not tolerate shade.

    Common under-story shrubs found in a jack pine stand are prickly rose, bunchberry, bearberry, blueberry, beaked hazelnut and Labrador tea. The groundcover of a jack pine stand usually consists of reindeer lichen and feather moss. It is susceptible to severe losses from fire, insects, disease as well as browsing by deer or moose. Many insects and diseases attack jack pine trees but dwarf mistletoe is the most recognizable disease to the landowners.
