Are these Loblolly pines? They grow everywhere here and are very weedy, and the branches that break at the bottom do not grow back so you normally only see the pine needles at the top of the tree. Here is a smaller one in my backyard that was dug up about 4 years ago as a small 1 foot tree. Once you get to the foot of the Appalachian mountains and westward of them they stop growing. Are these Loblolly pines?

Not sure... The only pine I really like is Pinus pinea. Its too bad they don't really have them in the US. :/

It could be Pinus taeda since they are found in 14 states, mostly in the southeastern U.S. ranging from New Jersey to central Florida and west to eastern Texas and Oklahoma...so says the google machine.

It probably is a loblolly pine (Pinus taeda). Although it does kind of look like a shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata).

They're out here up the wazoo as we say.

But, they're very imposing when they get old.

That one's in Spain. It's ancient.

We all look different when we're ancient.

I used the sell Pinus pinea all the time back when I ran the garden shops. Nice, tough, picturesque pine tree that could be bonsai'd if you didn't mind a little butchery now and then.

3 kilometers of my house there is a forest of Pinus pinea. 

They was planted 120 years ago because between the sea and the town, there is sand mountains. With the wind, this mountains were "eating" the houses and the people planted this trees for atach the sand.

Now we have a very nice forest in the beach.
