A row of pines grows along the fence that screens the maintenance yard of the Power House. They are behind the small parking lot on Vanderbilt Place across from the Beta Theta Pi house.
White pine is easy to recognize by its needles
. They are in clusters of five and the needles are white on one side. The cones
are also quite different from other pines in this area.
White pine is not common in the wild in middle Tennessee. However, it is one of the most widely planted pines and so is very frequently seen around homes and towns.
