Properties and uses:
The Chinese white pine is a rare tree that is often grown by collectors or bonsai lovers. Its brown trunk turns greyish scarlet and becomes deeply cracked over time. Its pale green needles are slender and long (up to 16cm). This pine will really profit in a large garden where it is a lone specimen. It is equally magnificent when grown as a bonsai.
