(Balkan Pine, Macedonian Pine)

This dense, narrow, medium to tall evergreen tree from the Balkan Peninsula is prized by gardeners for its symmetrical habit and formal bearing.

The long, semi-rigid, deep blue-green needles of this pine occur in bundles of five. They densely clothe the short, ascending, closely spaced branches. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and large cylindrical female cones near the branch tips. The solitary or clustered, dangling female cones are sheathed with fleshy, resinous green scales...

This is a famous pine tree of Italy which can be seen in many famous pictures of Rome. Native to the coastal regions of the Mediterranean, it has been cultivated since the days of the ancient empire. When young, this pine has a rounded habit, but at maturity it develops a flattened, umbrella-like canopy that rises from a thick straight trunk.

Stone pines have olive green needles of medium length that are held in bundles of two. Younger trees have shorter needles. Mature trees produce medium-sized,...

(Ponderosa Pine)

Poderosa pine is the most common pine in the American West and is the primary species in many middle elevation forests. Its range extends throughout most mountain ranges from the Rockies to California, including southern British Columbia and the highest elevations of northwestern Mexico.

Young trees have a neatly pyramidal habit but when mature they develop a tall, bushy, irregular crown. The bark can be quite beautiful and impressive in older specimens. It is cinnamon orange with contrasting...

(Dwarf Siberian Pine, Japanese Stone Pine)

This low, spreading, little-known evergreen from East Asia is as handsome as the popular Mugho pine (Pinus mugo), but less trouble-prone.

The long, rigid, dark blue-green needles of this shrubby pine occur in bundles of five. They densely clothe the ascending to prostrate branches. In spring, plants produce clusters of tiny male cones and egg-shaped female cones near the branch tips. The erect cones are sheathed with fleshy, resinous green scales that turn woody and brown (or purple)...

The long, rigid, showy needles of this dwarf cultivar occur in bundles of five. They densely clothe the ascending to prostrate branches. In spring, plants produce clusters of tiny male cones and egg-shaped female cones near the branch tips. The erect cones are sheathed with fleshy,...

(Hickory Pine, Table Mountain Pine)

This small, asymmetrical, often crooked-trunked pine is one of the characteristic tree species of the Appalachian Mountains from Pennsylvania to Georgia.

The short, stiff, dark bluish-green needles of this evergreen tree occur in bundles of two on rough, orange-brown to brown branches. The needles are twisted and sharp-tipped. In spring, plants produce clusters of tiny purple male cones and egg-shaped female cones near the branch tips. The clustered, often whorled female cones are sheathed...

(Monterey Pine)

This is a rare coastal pine that has proven highly successful in limited conditions only. It is native to the middle California coast and the Guadalupe Islands of Mexico. The wild population is shrinking, so there are now far more specimens in cultivation than in habitat. Planting this pine ensures it an opportunity to endure for future generations. One of its shortcomings is its strong preference for clean salt air and coastal moisture, limiting its use to a narrow band along the oceanfront. Its...

(American Red Pine, Norway Pine)

An important timber tree, this medium to large, horizontally branched pine is native from Newfoundland and the eastern United States to the northern Great Plains.

The long, rubbery, medium- to dark-green needles of this evergreen conifer occur in bundles of two. They are held toward the tips of spreading, reddish branches. The needles snap neatly in two when bent. In spring, tiny male cones and relatively small female cones appear near the branch tips. The squat, broadly conical, brown female...

(Northern Pitch Pine, Pitch Pine)

A distinctive, medium-sized tree with irregular, horizontal branches, this tough, drought-tolerant pine inhabits sandy or rocky habitats over much of eastern North America.

The rigid, sharp, dark green needles of this evergreen conifer occur in bundles of three. They are held toward the tips of rough brown twigs that terminate in resinous buds. Plants have one to several trunks with dark red-brown, deeply furrowed bark, which often bears tufts of needles. In spring, tiny male cones and relatively...

The rigid, sharp, medium-green needles of this evergreen conifer occur in bundles of three. They are held toward the tips of rough brown twigs that terminate in resinous buds. Plants have one to several trunks with dark red-brown, deeply furrowed bark,...
