“Pinus nigra Austriaca (Austrian Pine) is sometimes referred to as Black Pine and is a tough two needled evergreen. Its needles are much greener and longer than the Scots Pine and its growth more solid giving it a denser habit. An ideal choice for coastal areas and exposed, windswept sites, Pinus nigra Austriaca thrives even in very chalky soils. This large evergreen has a pyramidal form but retains its bushy, juvenile appearance mush longer than Scots pine.”
