Pinus strobus is found in the Nearctic Temperate broadleaf and mixed forests Biome of eastern North America. It prefers well-drained soil and cool, humid climates, but can also grow in boggy areas and rocky highlands. In mixed forests, this dominant tree towers over all others, including the large broadleaf hardwoods. It provides food and shelter for numerous forest birds, such as the Red Crossbill, and small mammals such as squirrels.
Eastern white pine forests originally covered much of northeastern North America. Only one percent of the old-growth forests remain after the extensive logging operations that existed from the 18th century into the early 20th century.
In magical folklore, Pine is a strong herb, ruled by Mars and Air. It is a sacred herb to Cybele, Pan, Venus, Dionysus, and Astarte. It has traditionally been used to improve fertility and for healing. It can also be a cleansing herb, excellent for removing negative energies and entities.
