Pinus sylvestris – Scots pine 1.5-1.8m tall
Pinus sylvestris is a large, majestic, evergreen pine tree. Commonly known as Scots Pine, it is the only Pine tree native to the UK.
Scots Pine has a compact, conical shape when young, and matures to develop a bare trunk and a broad, conical crown.
It has pairs of tough, blue-green, twisted, needle-like leaves which stay on all year long. Large brown cones form from female flowers (after pollination).
Ideal planted as a specimen tree, windbreak or screen in larger gardens and parks. Scots pine will add evergreen interest to a woodland area.
