Pine Conifer Trees | Pinus

Pine trees are evergreen and although many species can reach upwards of 30m in height, our selection of Pine trees focuses on those that are suitable sizes for domestic gardens, whether you want a feature trees or something to fill a border all year round. We even offer a dwarf form, Pinus sylvestris 'Chantry Blue' suitable for the smallest of gardens.

Pine trees belong to the family Pinacea and are the most common type of coniferous tree worldwide. The foliage of Pine trees is made up of small bundles of needles (usually between 2 and 5 needles in each cluster, dependent on the species) which sit in fascicles and are arranged in spirals about the stem. Pine trees retain each set of needles for at least two years, and when these fall (they don't all fall at once), they are immediately replaced with new ones.

Planting Pine Trees

Pine trees are really quite versatile when it comes to preferred soil conditions, growing well in chalk, loam, sand and clay, as well as both acidic and alkaline soils, as long as they are fairly well drained. Pine trees do prefer to be in full sun and if planted in shade you may find that they don't grow as quickly and the foliage may be less vibrant.
