The Spruce Pine (P. glabra, Walt.) is a close relative of the shortleaf, P. echinata. it grows from South Carolina to Louisiana, in lowlands, solitary or in considerable groves. It attains the height of 120 feet, and spreads over a considerable territory in northwestern Florida. Little use is made of its light, soft wood beyond the local fuel supply. It is known as " cedar pine" in Mississippi. Its foliage is soft, and bright, dark green, being shed when but two years old.
