Plant details

This is a slender, conical pine, with upswept branches when young, but becoming more columnar with age. The bark is smooth and grey and then becomes black and cracked. The grey-green needles are borne in clumps of fives, and are up to 13cm (5in) long. The cones are cylindrical and tapered, up to 15cm (6in) long, green at first and then brown. This massive tree is only suitable for the largest gardens, or as a windbreak, at the boundary of a huge expanse of land.
