Also known as Eastern White Pine, Qubec Yellow Pine is the tallest conifer in Eastern Canada. Its wood is the least resinous of all pines. A very fast-growing tree, it can reach heights of 90 metres with diameters up to 250 centimetres. Although fast growing it has a very uniform texture and is often used for mouldings, cabinetwork, doors, windows, siding and panelling. Its wood is tender and ranges from creamy white to yellow. It is valued for its very fine tight grain and works exceptionally well.
