Introducing the Pinus koraiensis, also known as the Korean Pine or Chinese Pinenut. This tree species is native to eastern Asia, including Manchuria, far eastern Russia, Korea, and central Japan. It can grow up to 50 meters tall with a trunk diameter of 1.5-2 meters. The seeds are extensively harvested and sold as pine nuts, particularly in northeastern China. The nut oil contains 11.5% of the unusual fatty acid pinolenic acid. The Korean Pine is a popular ornamental tree in cold climates and is tolerant of severe winter cold, hardy down to about -50 °C. It is also used for construction, furniture, and wood pulp. The seeds have medicinal properties and are used to promote milk flow in nursing mothers and as an analgesic and antibacterial in Korea.
