Where most soft woods are found in the United States.

For a handy reference to the best-known softwood trees, here is a compiled list showing the general areas in the United States where they may be found.
Most conifers are evergreens, or softwoods, and they produce seeds within cones. Conifers usually have needles which they shed, but not all at once, and they remain green throughout the year. Softwoods light easily and make a good fire, but they burn fast and leave few coals.
