Pinus nigra - Austrian Pine tree 2.25-2.75m tall
Pinus Nigra is a large pine with a dense covering of long, quite stiff, dark green needles. Austrian Pine is a tough evergreen tree with very bushy growth and a conical shape which is held long into maturity and is therefor much used as a screen and wind break even in coastal areas
The bark is dark brown, sometimes almost black, and fissured or grooved when mature.
Grows on most soils and is less fussy than our native Scots Pine even coping well in clay soils as long as there is no water logging through winter or wet periods.
Growing to 15-20m tall Pinus nigra is ideal for large gardens and parks either grown as a specimen or used as a wind break.
