Longleaf Pine is planted sparingly in my region. Was a real nice one in front of a Big & Tall men's clothing store that was yanked out some years ago. People just do things like that.

They are more numerous on the Jersey side of the river, but "numerous" is not an accurate word. Let's say they are "less rare."

All the ones that I've seen in the Delaware Valley to the beaches I could count on two hands and maybe have a couple fingers left over. A tree you don't see much of, but when you do, they look very healthy and happy.
