Notes

We call it the Scots Pine but Pinus sylvestris is the world's most widely distributed Pine and occurs right across Eurasia from Scotland to China.  Our only native Pine, the Scots Pine is much finer than the Monterey Pines that stand out across the valley.  The bark is tinged orange, the needles are set in pairs, and the cones are smaller and do not stay on the tree for years.  This tree has clearly had a difficult life and has grown in a contorted shape which I find quite appealing.  More about Scots Pine if you click here.
