Pinus nigra / sylvestris - rootballed Austrian and Scots Pine trees

Large potted rootball Pines available now. We have a selection of both Scots and Austrian Pines which have been locally grown and now lifted and potted ready for sale. These range from 2-2.25m tall up to 3.5-4m tall and cost from £205-£365 each. These can be delivered locally by us but due to their size and weight deliveries to less local areas will require unloading arranged by the customer with machinery to lift the tree from the delivery vehicle.

Pinus Nigra is a large pine with a dense covering of long, quite stiff, dark green needles. This tough tree is evergreen and much used as a screen and wind break even in coastal areas. Austrian Pine have very bushy growth and a conical shape which is held long into maturity. 

The bark is dark brown to almost black and fissured. Grows on most soils and is less fussy than our native Scots Pine.

Pinus sylvestris is our only native pine. When younger it is a compact conical tree becoming  a large tree when mature with a broad conical shape crown on top a characteristically bare trunk. The tough needle like leaves can vary in colour from light green to blue-green. Produces ovoid cones which age to a grey-brown colour.

Both Scots and Austrian Pine grow to 15-20m tall and are ideal for large gardens and parks either grown as a specimen or used as a wind break.

If the tree size you require is not listed please call for current availability and delivery options as we are always updating the stock we have for sale at our tree nursery in Essex.
