Pinus nigra, also known as Austrian pine or black pine is an evergreen tree that is native to southern Mediterranean Europe spanning from Spain to Turkey, as well as North Africa's high mountains. The Austrian pine is quite versatile, capable of surviving at sea level or at heights up to 6,500 feet. Reaching heights of 60-100 ft and a width of 20 to 40 feet at maturity, this tree displays a rounded conic form that grows more irregular with age. The bark varies in color from grey to yellow-brown, and becomes increasingly fissured as the tree matures. The leaves, or "needles," are thinner and more flexible in western populations. Pinus nigra grows moderately fast, at about 12-24 inches per year. Known for its long lifespan, some trees are documented to be over 500 years old! It's resistant to snow, ice damage, and various industrial pollutants. In addition to its salt spray tolerance, it's also known for its drought tolerance making it an attractive street and ornamental tree in the US, Canada, and the UK. The lumber is often used for rough carpentry and furniture. With all these beneficial traits, it's clear why the Austrian pine has been cherished and widely planted for so many years.
