The short needles are dark green, contrasting with the scaly, grey bark of its trunk which becomes more orange towards the crown of the tree. A spectacular specimen tree for a large garden or woodland area. Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’).

Grow Pines in any well-drained soil in full sun. Most Pines will tolerate dry conditions and exposed locations once established. Alternatively grow smaller species in large containers, using a good soil-based compost mix.
Once established, Pines require no pruning or maintenance.
