Scots Pine

Scots pine or Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestrus) 

Scots pine is pyramidal when young, becoming more open and irregular when mature. It will grow to 15 m in height with a spread of 8 m. The bark on the upper trunk and branches peels to reveal light orange inner bark. It bears twisted blue-green needles grouped in pairs and curved cones growing on short stems. Since Scots pine has a deep tap root it may be successfully under planted with small shrubs or perennials.
