2. Eastern white pine

Evergreens are some of the most beautiful and graceful trees you can plant, and the eastern white pine is no exception. This species makes for great shade trees and windbreaks, and you can easily turn them into a hedge. Despite its positive qualities, the eastern white pine is an incredibly messy tree. If you plan to plant this tree, be ready to clean up plenty of pinecones and fallen needles throughout the year. You can expect an eastern white pine to grow between 12 and 15 inches per year.
