220 year old trees that are 46 meters tall in the forests of Järvselja). The Scots Pine, also known as Pinus sylvestris, is the only native pine to northern Europe and is an important tree in forestry as its wood is used for pulp and sawn timber products. It is extremely adaptable to various soils and was one of the first trees introduced to North America in about 1600. This evergreen coniferous tree can grow up to 25 meters in height and has a distinctive habit with a long, bare, and straight trunk topped by a rounded or flat-topped mass of foliage. Its blue-green leaves and orange-red bark make it easily identifiable. The Scots Pine has a lifespan of 150-300 years, with the oldest recorded specimens reaching over 700 years old. It is a high altitude mountain tree, growing at 1,200-2,600 meters in the south of its range and from sea level to 1,000 meters in the north. This tree produces red seed cones that bud in the first year and expand to full size in the second year, eventually turning yellow-brown at maturity. The seeds are released in the spring, 22-24 months after pollination. With over 100 varieties described in the botanical literature, only three or four are now accepted, differing minimally in morphology but more pronounced in genetic analysis and resin composition. Its irregular pyramid shape in its youth often makes it a popular choice as a Christmas tree. The Scots Pine is an adaptable, hardy tree suited to various landscapes and climates, making it a great addition to any outdoor space.
