Everything about: Pine, Corsican

Corsican Pine - Pinus nigra corsicana (latin)

Geographical origins: Rocky escarpments of Corsica.
Adult dimensions: Height up to 40 m (131'), width up to 15 m (49,2').
Foliage: Evergreen.
Type of soil: Any.
Hardiness: Hardy to -24°C.
Exposure: Full sun.


Properties and uses:
The name immediately brings to mind images of huge cathedrals against the blue sky in the beautiful countryside of Corsica. This tree is used a lot in forestation for its rectitude and its growth. The needles of the Corsican pine are twisted unlike those of the Pine of Calabria. In both cases, they come in pairs.

Plant, or reforest Corsican Pine, Pinus nigra corsicana – Foresters Guide

1) The Corsican Pine (Pinus nigra corsicana) is it suitable for my land?

The Corsican Pine tolerates a strong water shortage during the summer. But it suffers when the temperatures are very low and it is still a young plant: the lowest temperature being -25°C. The Corsican Pine prefers well-drained soils and thrives in acidic soils. It tolerates healthy clayey soils but doesn’t like carbonate soils and those with heavy water logging.

2) Which planting density for my Corsican Pine plot? (Pinus nigra corsicana)

The planting density is the number of plants planted in one hectare (acre). Here it means determining the initial number of young plants and to choosing their repartition in the available space.
The planting density is defined by the gaps in between the lines as well as the spacing in between each plant on a same line.
It is the basics of the silvicultural path which must lead to a final trees’ population of quality and to the fulfilment of the land’s owner set goals.

Advice: When choosing the density, think about the width of the tool which will allow the maintenance of the gaps in between the lines. The space in between the lines must allow clear passage for a tractor-drawn, maintenance tool.

For the Corsican Pine (Pinus Nigra Corsicana):

  • A classical forest program can be considered with 1200 to 1600 plants/hectare.

3) How to prepare the soil to plant Corsican Pine (Pinus nigra corsicana)?

In Silviculture, working the soil is a key element in the success of planting. The root system of the tree must take rapidly where planted. Whether the work is done mechanically or manually, we recommend working the soil in its depth for optimum planting.

4) How to plant the Corsican Pine (Pinus nigra corsicana)?

a- Receipt, storage and preparation of the plants before planting

  • Upon receipt, place the crates side by side, on a flat surface so as there is no air circulation underneath. Choose a shady spot protected from wind;
  • Maintain a good humidity level of the plants on the crates placed on the edges,
  • Plan for the possibility of watering if planting is delayed or if the plants require water,
  • In case of frost, do not handle the plants and if frost is forecasted for several days, place mulch on the edges.
b- Planting
    Our team of professional planters use a planting cane to place the earth-balled plants in situ. This ergonomic, light tool allows quality, quicker planting work. It is also possible to carry out a traditional planting work using a pickaxe or a spade

    In all case, you must:
  • Dig a hole a little bit larger than the earth-ball ;
  • Position it well in the hole;
  • Cover it entirely;

  • Finally, the worker will tamp down the soil carefully with its foot. It is forbidden to press strongly or again to heel-butt the plant to avoid crushing the earth-ball and damage the root system of the plant.

5) How to limit weeds on my Corsican Pine plot (Pinus nigra corsicana) ?

During the first years, it is essential to eliminate all self-propagating plants. Not controlled they are going to be in competition with your plants and are going to deprive the young trees of the vital elements they require to grow (water, light and nutritional elements). You must therefore eliminate mechanically this unwanted competition until the trees are big enough to be able to dominate it.

Two types of operations are possible after planting:

    Manual clearing around the plants
    It is in fact acts often carried out using portable thermic Strimmers or billhooks to clear plants on a line or around the plants themselves.
    Mechanical clearing of the space in between the lines
    These actions are done using cutters and flail mowers, horizontal or vertical cutters, mounted on mini excavators or tractors. As a result, they cannot be undertaken outside the spaces available between the tree lines (plants or plants).

6) How to protect my young Corsican Pine plants from wildlife (Pinus nigra corsicana) ?

There is a necessity to protect the plot as soon as the population’s density of Cervidae (deer and roe deer in particular) risk leading to significant damage such as undergrowth of the plants or friction of the stems. Sometimes, the setting up of plants’ protection is also necessary as soon as the rodents’ population (rabbits, hares, coypu, voles...) are locally important.

3 types of protections are possible:

  • Individual, mechanical Protections ( dissuasive netting, photo-degradable tubes,...)
  • Protection by total wire-fencing of the plot,
  • Protection by applying a repellent on each plant or on the borders of the plot.
