Red pine is used for timber, where it is valued for its straight trunk. It is sometimes planted in plantations for this use.

It is rarely used in landscaping, as it does not adapt well to cultivation, and particularly, fares poorly when planted in poorly-drained soils, areas with hot summers, or when exposed to pollution.
