A common evergreen tree or srub in both town and countryside.
Very slow growing and long-lived, some are considered to be over 2000yrs old. Some cultivars are more well-known than the native type.
Introduced some 400 years ago from the Mediterranean region, this tree has very variable evergreen leaves. Grows best in coastal regions where it gets mild winters.
Our only native species of Pine
