The white pine of North America is one of the most beautiful trees. It was much used by native American Indians for both food and medicine, the new pine tops having been eaten as a spring tonic, the resin tea used for sore throats and as an expectorant. White pine bark is a major ingredient in the famous Composition Powder developed by Thomsonian herbalism to energize the body and overcome fevers, infections and stagnation. Use the young needles or inner bark in decoction form for respiratory complaints, colds and fevers.

Other pines have similar properties and at one time retreats to sanatoriums in the pine mountains of Germany and Austria were justly popular; walking and breathing the pine-scented air was curative for asthma and other respiratory complaints.
