Screws in white pine trees?

Asked August 12, 2015, 9:34 AM EDT

We have a white pine that is 30 feet tall and 30 inches in diameter. Is it harmful to put in two screws for a birdhouse? Thanks for your help.

From your description of the tree, it is large and should be able to overcome any damage from the two screws. However, over time, the tree may grow over the screws and push the birdhouse off.
