Pinus roxburghii, commonly known as Chir Pine or Longleaf Indian Pine, is a large tree that grows up to 150 ft in height and 6 ft in diameter. This species of pine is native to the Himalayas and is found from northern Pakistan to Bhutan. It generally grows at a lower altitude than other pines and occurs from 1600-6500 ft. The bark of Chir Pine is red-brown and thick, and the leaves are needle-like and yellowish-green. The cones are ovoid conic and green when closed, maturing to glossy chestnut-brown after 24 months. The wood of this tree is the weakest and most prone to decay compared to other conifers, but it is used widely for timber and also tapped commercially for resin. The resin yields an essential oil, commonly known as turpentine, which is used as a solvent in various industries. Additionally, the thick bark of this tree provides an easily-carvable material for the locals to make brooms, lids for vessels, and use as fuel for their furnaces. The dried needles of this tree also serve as bedding for cattle. This species is occasionally used as an ornamental tree in hot and dry areas as it is drought-tolerant.
