Description: Shortleaf pine is one of the most valuable timber species in Missouri and, within its present and potential range, should have an important role in the restoration of the productivity of the forests. The pine will produce more stems per acre, greater merchantable lengths, and consequently a greater volume of usable wood per acre than the associated hardwood species. It has a good growth rate and reaches marketable size at an early age. It yields a variety of products such as sawtimber, pulpwood, posts, poles, and piling. It is the only pine species of any importance in the state and its products have a ready market.
