Pine, Scotch 2-0 (Pinus sylvestris rhodopaea)
Scotch pine is a medium-sized tree reaching up to 90 feet tall. Typically pyramidal when young, becoming more rounded and open with age. Prefers moist, well-drained soils, but will tolerate drier sites. Used as an ornamental landscape tree for homes and public grounds. Orange, peeling bark provides visual accents. Extensively planted for Christmas trees, and provides a nesting site and winter cover for wildlife.
