Charlie,

Is that tree in Italy too?

Looks a little like a Pinus sylvestris L.

I don't know if they grow in Italy or not.  They aren't native in the US of A but there's a bunch of them been planted.

That's too easy isn't it?

You're sorta on the right track Noble!  It's not Pinus sylvestris L.  though.  You got part of it....It is Pinus....... ::)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If ya wanna know about Pinus Sylvestris though, here's a link.

http://www.na.fs.fed.us/spfo/pubs/silvics_manual/Volume_1/pinus/sylvestris.htm


Pinus sylvestris L.

Scotch Pine

Pinaceae -- Pine family

Darroll D. Skilling

Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris), also called Scots pine, is an introduced species in North America, brought here from Europe probably in colonial days. Although it is used for both pulpwood and sawlogs, its principal value in the United States appears to be as a Christmas tree, as an ornamental, and for erosion control.

Habitat
Native Range
Scotch pine has been widely planted in the United States, especially in the Northeast, Lake States, Central States, and Pacific Northwest. It is now considered naturalized in parts of New England and the Lake States (29). The species has also been planted across southern Canada.

Scotch pine is the most widely distributed pine in the world. It grows naturally from Scotland almost to the Pacific Ocean and from above the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. Its altitudinal range is from sea level to about 2440 m (8,000 ft).

Charlie,


that's probably not a Pinus succinifera

Just in case it is, please let me know right away because there are some fellows that would probably like to know where you took that kodac.

Ya know this aint fair. When we put on a tree or plant we usually include the needles and a close up. all you gave us was somebodys Bonzai pruned in a broken clay dish that looks like some old ruins.

Its a Pinus Bonzainess

Noble, it's not Pinus Succinefera. From what I can find, that is an ancient tree from which Amber comes. I'm not sure it still exists.
The amber-yielding pine Pinus succinifera (Conw.) Schubert was described as early as the 19th century as the mother-tree of Baltic amber or succinite, the earliest known among fossil resins. The name, common for four species of conifers, today does not satisfy researchers. The search for amberís mother-tree, best known on the southern beaches of the Baltic and Sambia, continues.

It's not Pinus longaeva, It ain't Pinus Shortaeva, it ain't even Pinus Bonzainess and Jeff quit your whining about not seeing the needles......

HINTS
1. This tree is living in Italy in the ruins of ancient Ostia not far from Rome. It is common in the Mediterranian area.
2. For the common name, look at a Morton Salt Box.

DanG it! Now I've pretty much given it away. †
