Pinus sylvestris Conifer

Scots Pine Tree

from From £119.99 (ex. VAT)
( £143.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

The only pine tree native to the UK, Pinus sylvestris is a popular evergreen conifer with blue-green, slightly twisted needles. The trunk is easily recognisable with a rugged texture, turning reddish brown near the top as it matures. Elevated above a tall trunk, sits the bushy, upright crown that is host to dozens of grey-brown pine cones developing from the female flowers.

With a mature height and spread in excess of 10 x 10 metres, this conifer is suited to large gardens or woodland settings. The growth rate of Pinus sylvestris is relatively fast for a conifer. It will grow in most soil types and copes well in a well-drained site but it is best to avoid coastal situations.

For a small garden Scots pine tree, take a look at Pinus sylvestris Chantry Blue.

Planting Advice for Pinus sylvestris  Conifer Trees

When planting conifers, such as the Scots pine conifer, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown ornamental conifer trees can be planted at any time of the year.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. We advise planting young trees with a stake and tie kit. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Pinus sylvestris  Conifer Trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.
