“Pinus nigra nigra (Austrian Pine) is referred to as Black Pine with its dark greyish-brown to black bark 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.
Fast growing, it is an ideal choice for coastal areas and exposed, windswept sites, and even in very chalky soils.
This large evergreen that can grow to well over 20 metres has a pyramidal form but retains its bushy, juvenile appearance much longer than Scots Pine.”
