Fast Growing - Thrives on Neglect
The Scotch Pine tree, Pinus Sylvestris, is a conifer that is a native of Europe and is widely used as a Christmas Tree!
It is a fast growing, irregularly shaped tree. The evergreen foliage consists of short, twisted needles, which are bluish-green and often change to yellow-green in winter. Older trees have orange-colored bark in the crown.
It is a very winter hardy tree and is well suited throughout the Great Plains and Southern Canada. It is known for its tolerance of poor soils that may be sandy, rocky, or of heavy clay!
It can reach a height of six feet in six years with good care. When used in windbreaks, it should be placed in east or south inside rows and works best in partial shade to full sun. The Scotch Pine does best in well-drained soils and is adaptable to nearly all climates!
It is a hardy tree that grows rapidly for a pine tree and tolerates prolonged drought.
Thriving on neglect in full sun, Scotch Pine is grown in urban areas as an ornamental evergreen tree, in rural areas for erosion control, or for primary establishment.
The Christmas tree or Scotch Pine tree is the perfect tree to beautify any yard!
