The pine is also called a pine. It bears the botanical species name Pinus sylvestris. Maximum heights of up to 48 meters can be achieved. The maximum age of a pine is 600 years. In most forest operations, however, it is felled after 80 years of age. 

Pollination as well as needlework 

Pinus sylvestris is monoecious. There is both cross-pollination and wind pollination. The needle-shaped leaves have a dark green color typical of conifers. The cones of the pine can be defined as dark brown. This tree species is an evergreen conifer. 

Soil condition 

Pinus sylvestris prefers sandy soil variations. To the delight of many foresters, it also grows in locations with a low nutrient content. Pinus sylvestris also gratefully accepts extremely arid and very humid locations. Therefore the pine can represent an alternative to the spruce and the beech, especially in coastal areas. 


Pinus sylvestris can be found in Europe, America and Asia. Due to its already mentioned preference for sandy soil variations, it feels particularly comfortable in the coastal areas. The pine can even be found on sandy dunes. 


Pinus sylvestris forms a firm and elastic wood. That is why it is the second most important tree species in domestic forestry after the spruce. In the past, large-scale pine monocultures were planted during reforestation. Such monocultures have been shown to lead to acidification of the soil. The risk of abiotic damaging factors can also be classified as comparatively high. Forest fires and insect damage are examples here. Therefore, even in locations with a poor supply of nutrients, you should definitely reduce the risk of damage by choosing several tree species. In sandy locations, for example, adding yew and oak is recommended. This gives your forest ecosystem a higher ecological value in addition to greater resilience.
