Pine needles are bursting with Vitamin C all winter long and can help keep your immune system up and prevent scurvy even in the worst of winters!

Please do not use loblolly pine needles (3 needles), as they contain a chemical that can cause long-term health effects. Also do not confuse spruce or fir trees for pine! Try to find either Virginia Pine (2 needles in each bundle) or White Pine (5 needles in each bundle). You’ll mostly find loblolly pine in Virginia especially south of the fall line, so be careful! Northern states will have more edible species.
