Discover the versatile and robust Pinus eldarica tree, known by many names including the Afghan Pine, Desert Pine, Eldarica Pine, Lone Star Christmas Tree, and the Mondell Pine. This coniferous evergreen, introduced to the Southwestern U.S by the Department of Agriculture, is celebrated for its ability to thrive in dry, arid climates with summer rainfall peaks. The Afghan Pine flourishes in warm temperatures and withstands dry winds, alkaline soils, and temperature fluctuations. Hardy to zones 6 to 11, this tree perfectly suits southern states such as New Mexico and Alabama as well as coastal states on the Pacific and Atlantic shorelines.
Though of Middle Eastern origin, the Afghan Pine has firmly established itself in American forests since its introduction in the mid-20th century. Known for its symmetry and aesthetic beauty, this pine not only serves as a fresh option for a Christmas tree but also as a fantastic ornamental tree for dry climates. Due to its dense foliage, it works well as a shade tree in lawns and open areas. Rapid growth, tolerance to various soil conditions, low maintenance and significant landscape value make the Afghan Pine a popular choice. Experience the stately presence and utility of the Afghan Pine in your environment today.
