The Austrian pine has passed the test, just as it has for centuries in Europe. Since it was introduced to the U.S. in 1759, this pine has been planted as both a beautiful landscape tree — with its dense, dark green crown — and a working tree that restores strip mines and scarred land, stabilizes soil, and tames the wind.

  • Withstands city and seaside conditions and heat and drought
  • Grows well in clay and alkaline soils
  • Dense crown makes it ideal for windbreaks
  • Will be delivered at a height of 6"–1'

History/Lore

The Austrian pine is a native of Austria, northern Italy and the former Yugoslavia. It was introduced to the United States in 1759. Its forebears were likely worshipped by the Romans over 2000 years ago. Over 217 million Austrian pines were planted during the nation's great dust bowl shelterbelt project. The species has thrived for over 200 years in some of the worst soil and climate conditions America has to offer.
