The Scots Pine, is the only Pine that is a UK native, and its tall trunk and evergreen crown is a well-recognised tree throughout the country.
The Scots Pine doesn’t do well on coastal areas, but its non-native cousin the Black Pine thrives.
However, the Scots Pine does pretty well on any type of soil.
Spring and Summer is when it has its growth spurt, and it grows around 75cm in height.
The bark is a very attractive feature and its blue(ish) tinged evergreen canopy makes the Scots Pine a proud contender as one of the most special species of UK trees.
