Mountain pine - Pinus montana uncinata

Author: Joan Simon

Characteristics and uses:
The mountain pine has an asymmetrical shape. Its bark is blackish brown and its needles are dark green in colour and tightly packed and upright. Its oval shaped cones are small in size (3 to 6cm) and have curved hooked scales. It is principally found in the mountainous regions of Europe (Pyrenees, Alps, Balkans…). Its wood used to be used for construction, as it was particularly resistant.
This tree would be magnificent grown as a specimen tree in a large garden.
