Eastern White Pine is very valuable to wildlife. Their pine seeds are loved by black bears, rabbits, red squirrels and many birds. Due to the dense foliage this conifer exhibits, it provides important nesting habitat for woodpeckers, mourning doves, common grackles, nuthatches and chickadees. Bald eagles enjoy nesting on top of the largest Eastern White Pine trees. As this evergreen grows larger, larger birds place their nests closest to the trunk while smaller species such as robins and pine warblers place their nests well out on to the limbs.
