Pinus pinea

"Umbrella Pine / Stone Pine"

Common Name

"Umbrella Pine / Stone Pine"

Medium. A very distinct tree developing a characteristic dense, flat-topped or umbrella-shaped head. A picturesque pine particularly suitable for sandy soils and maritime areas. The seeds which are pine nuts, have been a delicacy for many years. This is a very useful tree for planting around coastal areas. You may be familiar with it as it occurs widely in countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, often growing alongside Cupressus sempervirens on rugged hillsides. Planted successfully on coastal projects in the UK. Evergreen.
