It's pine Jim, but not as we know it?
« on: April 01, 2018, 01:13:11 AM »
Took down a rather ugly pine tree today. It was a "needed to go before it got bigger and uglier" thing.  But it's not our normal Radiata.
Cones are much smaller, needles longer and droopier, bark is more orange, and it doesn't have much smell? Fast growing in our climate, about 28" DBH and a bit over 30 years old. 











Any ideas before I resort to Google to figure out what it actually is? :)

Well I had to haul out the books. 

My guess is Mexican Pine. Pinus Patula
