Austrian Pine 5 gal
Container Size: 5 gal
Grown Dimensions:
40-60'
Description:
The tree will form in a pyramidal or oval shape while young and may become irregular as the tree ages. It will grow to be 40-60' tall and 20-40' wide.

Grow this tree in a location that receives full sun.

There are two needles in each fascicle. They are 2-6" long and dark green in color.

The tree is monoecious and the male and female flowers are both yellow to yellow-green. The female flowers may also come in a purple color.

The brown cones are shaped like an egg and measure 2-3" long.

Water regularly for the first year. After that period, this pine will have some resistance to drought.

If you live in an urban area, you may want to consider one of these trees. They are able to handle salt in the air, as well as pollution and other problems found in the city atmosphere.

The Austrian pine is able to grow in many different types of soil, especially ones that can be considered difficult, like clay or sand.

As always, you can remove any dead, diseased or damaged branches on the tree. Otherwise, there should be little pruning involved in the upkeep of your tree unless you need to remove branches over a street or walkway.
