Thick Screen or Windbreak

The Austrian Pine, Pinus nigra, is a densely branched tree producing long dark needles. This evergreen conifer tree thrives in urban locations as well as in windbreaks in more rural settings.

It does well in a variety of soils and is very hardy. The spreading branches of a young tree form a pyramidal outline, but at maturity, it sometimes achieves a picturesque flat topped head.

This fast growing pine tree makes an attractive Christmas tree when sheared. It will tolerate limestone or acidic soils, dry rocky locations and windy conditions.

Austrian pines are good for thick screens or windbreaks. For screen, space 6 feet apart. When placed in a good site it should reach 5 ft. in height in 6-7 years starting with a 2 year old seedling.

Great tree for screening because it is dense!

* Salt tolerant
* Tolerant of urban conditions
* 4 to 6 inch long needles

Great looking pine tree Review by Clay
I planted my austrian pines as a windbreak along one of my property lines. Fast growing, rich green color, i love them.
Love the privacy aspect Review by jeff
Love the austrian pine for its thick, full branching & classic shape. I learned that if you trim the leader, it will grow out faster & fuller.
Satisfied Review by Matty
Austrian Pine is a fast growing pine tree. You can get a smaller size & still get a pretty tall tree in a short period of time. Just make sure it doesn't get too much shade.
Fast growing Review by Kate J
My Austrian pines grew quickly. When I got them they were about 18 inches tall and in 3 years they are at least 4 foot tall, maybe five.
