A Truly Gorgeous Evergreen

The Austrian Pine (Pinus nigra) is a wonderfully dense selection that works hard for you by screening undesirable views, and protecting your home from strong winds year round. It's good looks are an added bonus!

There are a lot of advantages to selecting this variety. With plenty of strong branches producing long, dark needles all year long, you'll always be looking at a beautiful tree, versus that ugly view you hate so much.

The spreading branches of a young tree form a pyramidal outline, but at maturity, it sometimes achieves a picturesque flat topped head. You can use Austrian Pine as a single specimen for a restful, Japanese-style zen garden look. Dig a large boulder halfway in the ground and call the pairing a magnificent focal point. Add a kinetic sculpture that moves in the wind, and you've got something wonderful to look at all year long.

If you need a break from the wind, follow the old farmer's trick of using it as a superior windbreak tree. Plant a staggered - or zig zagged - row along the north or west sides of your property. Mix in other trees, or plant smaller ornamentals in front of the Austrian Pines. Birch trees pair beautifully with this tree. Contrast the bold shape with more delicate forms, such as Redbud or Weeping Cherry.

For a full screen of mature sized trees, you'll measure 20 feet between the trunk of each tree. That's just a bit less than the mature spread of the plant. You want the tips of the trees to overlap slightly.

Now, if you are willing to get aggressive and work to prune them into a solid hedgerow screen, you can plant them 15 feet on center from the trunk of one to the trunk of the other.

Either way, please understand that if you can buy bigger and older trees to start, you'll get an enormous head start on that privacy you crave.

You'll appreciate how adaptable Austrian Pine is to a variety of environmental conditions. This tree is hardy and it thrives in urban locations. It will tolerate limestone or acidic soils, dry rocky locations and windy conditions.
