|Description||A handsome evergreen tree with a densely branched conical form when young that becomes umbrella-shaped with age. Needles are long and dark green. Tolerates poor soils, and harsh, drying winds. A superb conifer for windbreaks or for use as a large landscape specimen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|

|Mature Size||Fast growing; reaches 40 to 60 ft. tall, 15 to 25 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Privacy Screen, Windbreak, Suitable for Topiary|
|Design Ideas||A very resilient Pine for the poor soils or alkaline conditions in the Midwest and far West. It is remarkably tolerant of hot and cold wind and is a crucial component in shelterbelts and windbreaks. Adapts well to dry conditions in the West, both in semi-desert and mountain foothill regions where soils are thin and poor. Makes a very graceful single specimen for front yards, parks or expansive estate-sized landscapes.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Winterberry (Ilex); Switch Grass (Panicum); Dogwood (Cornus); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Thrives in deep, average, well-drained, sandy or gravelly loams, but highly adaptable to a wide range, except soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates occasional, moderate drought. Apply fertilizer in early spring.|
