Jack Pine – Pinus banksiana ‘ Uncle Fogy’

Commonly called a jack pine, this variety got its name from its spring bud tips which drool resin and reminded some conifer wag of on old fogy. A weeping, twisting tree that demands training, it can be made to grow into some unusual shapes. Jerry talks about how you can – and should – train irregular growers like Uncle Fogy.
