25 meters in height, with a straight trunk topped by a mass of foliage that can be rounded or flat-topped. The needles are 2.5-5 cm long, glaucous blue-green, and produced in fascicles of two. The seed cones are pointed ovoid-conic, green, and mature to a yellow-brown color, while the bark is thick and scaly on the lower trunk and thin and flaky on the upper trunk and branches. The Scots Pine is extremely adaptable to various soils and can be identified by its distinctive orange-red bark and short blue-green needles.

Forestry:

Scots Pine is an important tree in forestry, with wood that is used for pulp and sawn timber products. It is also a popular choice for Christmas tree growers in the United States, especially French Provenances. As an evergreen conifer, it provides year-round beauty and the promise of a bountiful harvest for those who manage it sustainably. With a lifespan of 150-300 years, the Scots Pine offers long-term benefits to the environment and those who rely on its resources.
