Once common along the Maine coast, it was almost entirely stripped for boat-building lumber more than a century ago. Some extremely fine specimens in Maine grow on Swan Island in the Kennebec River.

Disease and insect resistant, drought tolerant. Slow growing and extremely long-lived. Native to eastern U.S. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root trees)
