Siberian Pine (Pinus cembra sibirica) is a distinctive species that features prominently in the mountains of central Europe and the Urals and Siberia in Asia. Classed as a subspecies of the Swiss Pine, the Siberian Pine is uniquely identified by slightly larger cones and three resin canals present in its needles, compared to two found in the Swiss Pine. These trees stand up to 90-120 ft tall with the trunk diameter measuring around 4.5 ft. The deciduous, fascicled leaves or 'needles' of these trees grow in bundles of five, extending 2-4 in long. Cones of the Siberian Pine measure between 2-3.5 inches, containing vestigial winged seeds 0.35-0.5 inches in length. These seeds, a significant food source for local inhabitants and wildlife, are primarily dispersed by the Siberian nutcracker bird species. Siberian Pine seeds are widely exported due to their edibility. Furthermore, Siberian Pine is largely resistant to the destructive White Pine Blister Rust, a notable trait in the field of research into hybridization and genetic modification for rust immunity.
