Pinus cembra

Swiss Stone Pine, Arolla Pine

The many forms and types of pines can be found in northern temperate zones and on mountains in the tropics. Some grow rapidly, others slowly. Some have silvery foliage, others are dark green. They range from dwarfs to 100-foot-tall trees. The size and form of their cones vary. All pines have long needlelike leaves grouped in clusters of 2 to 5. They are fairly drought-tolerant, with a few exceptions. Extended drought or pollution can weaken pines, making them susceptible to pests and diseases. They grow well in full sun and poor, but well-drained soils. Shape tree in spring. Too much water produces yellow needles.

Broad, open and round-topped with age, its slow growth and dense, regular foliage make it good for small gardens. A Northwest and Rocky Mountain favorite, it resists white pine blister and rust.
