Pinus Palustris Mill.

Nota de alcance (en)

Origins: Sandy soil.

Uses: This pine in southern Appalachia is a valuable source of turpentine, pine oil, tar, pitch, and rosin. The uses of turpentine oil as a rubefacient are well known. Rosin is widely used by athletes to protect their hands, and by violinists to prevent the bow from slipping and to produce better vibration. Pine tar from this source is used therapeutically for the same purpose as white pine tar. Pitch is of great value to the naval stores industry.
