As far as tree care goes for the Sand Pine, a moderate amount of pruning is required. The branches droop as it grows, and need to be pruned beneath the canopy for vehicular or pedestrian purposes. The wood is fairly weak and tends to have a heavier level of breakage than most trees.
This particular pine is extremely low maintenance. It can grow in almost any condition of light and soil. Its tolerance to droughts and salt is impeccable. The surface roots are very rarely a problem, and there are no pests or diseases that are a major concern to its health.
Sand Pines may be used for buffer strips around parking lots or median strip areas on the highway. As previously mentioned, they are most commonly used as Christmas trees. Aside from the immediate joy their appearance delivers, they do not have any known medicinal value.
