Pinus peuce - Macedonian Pine
Pinus peuce - Macedonian Pine is a handsome, upright coniferous tree which can grow to 30m tall. It has a pyramidal growing habit, with glossy young green shoots, showing deep blue-green needle-like leaves up to 10cm long. In the autumn, cylindrical green cones with white resin, each up to 15cm long, are borne on short stalks which ripen to brown later in the year.
The Macedonian Pine is very hardy, tolerating the high mountain alpine tree lines and thrives on free draining soils.
