The park counts over 20 White or Eastern White Pines (pinus strobus). Some cluster on the edge of the park close to the Guernsey Hall. Others can be found near the picnic tables. The white pine is native to the Eastern part of the United States and can be found from New Found Land, along the Appalachian range into the higher elevations of Alabama. Mature white pines usually have no branches at the bottom and can become 200–250 years old. Some live over 400 years. The tree has flexible needles that grow in bundles of 5 and have a bluish-green color. The cones of a white ash are slender and have scales with a rounded apex and slightly reflexed tip. The trunk of the White Pine is used for telephone poles.
