Classic Form, Fast Growing,Thrives on Neglect

The Scotch Pine tree (Pinus Sylvestris) is probably one of the best known and loved trees in the world. Even if you’ve never grown this tree in your yard, you’ve probably had it in your home. This evergreen is the classic Christmas Tree.

The pyramid form and gray-green color complement any landscape. This is one of the most easy-going of all evergreens. It tolerates any soil and especially loves sandy or clay soils. It doesn’t shudder at the cold. It even thrives in Siberia, where the ground never thaws completely, so you know that it will do ok with your winter weather. About the only thing that will set the Scotch Pine back is too much shade. It needs a good amount of sun during the day to perform at its best.

It can reach a height of six feet in six years with good care.  

It is a hardy tree that grows rapidly for a pine tree and tolerates prolonged drought. Practically thriving on neglect in full sun, Scotch Pine will anchor your border or foundation planting or soften the edges of your garage. And come Christmas time, well, it is truly unbeatable for that classic Christmas tree look, right?

Nature Hills ships only the best quality specimens of this classic tree. Order yours today!
