I live on a lake and the soil around the house tends to be soggy. The yard is surrounded by cattails… I would like to plant some trees for privacy. Can white pine grow in soggy soil? I had them in another house and was impressed by how quickly they grew. If white pine will not grow in wet soil can you suggest an evergreen or tree that will?
Pines won’t do well at all in such a damp area. None of the evergreens will. Naturall any of the willows will including the popular dappled willow which will grow into the size of a lilac. Here’s a list of other options including trees, shrubs and perennials. http://www.tlehcs.com/Pdf%20files/wet%20soil%20plants.pdf
