In a Nutshell:
* Pinus wallichiana is a pine native to the Himalaya , Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountains, from eastern Afghanistan east across northern Pakistan and India to Yunnan in southwest China . It grows at high altitudes in mountain valleys at altitudes of 1800–4300 m (rarely as low as 1200 m), and is a tree from 30–50 m in height. It grows in a temperate climate with dry winters and wet summers. more...
* "Excellent and beautiful pine for large areas, very graceful" (Dirr), broader at maturity than most pines, with a rounded top, drooping gray-green needles 6-8" long give the tree a soft texture, a timber and ornamental tree in Europe, native to Himalayas .
* China: predominantly at 600-3000 m elevation on the high plateaus of Yunnan (Li 1997), but extending N into Sichuan, where it intergrades with P. tabuliformis, and S into N Burma, where it intergrades with P. kesiya. In recent times it has extended its range as competing broadleaf forests are logged (Farjon 1984, Li 1997, Richardson and Rundel 1998).
