A pine is any conifer shrub or tree species from the Pinus genus of plants—a group that includes more than 120 species worldwide. These are evergreen conifers, woody plants that bear seed cones and which have bundles of needles rather than the broad leaves commonly found on deciduous trees.

Here are 40 common species of pine, many of which have become popular landscape plants now found well beyond their original native range.

Tip

When trying to definitively identify a pine, counting the number of leaves (needles) in each bundle (fascicle) can sometimes be the detail that allows you to make the proper identification.

    Aleppo Pine (Pinus halepensis)

    Aleppo pine, sometimes known as Jeruselum pine, is an extremely drought-resistant specimen that is a valuable landscape tree in hot climates, such as that of southern California. The needles are a light yellowish-green. In some parts of the world, it is regarded as an invasive species, since it has a habit of taking over areas burned off by fire.

    Aleppo pine is a large tree with an irregular shape. It works best on large properties where it has room to grow unimpeded.

    Aleppo pines include two needles, occasionally three, per bundle.

    • Native Area: Mediterranean region
    • USDA Growing Zones: 8 to 10
    • Height: 30 to 60 feet

    This medium- to large-sized conifer transforms from a pyramidal shape to a rounded-top specimen when fully mature. Also known as European black pine, the Austrian pine can be used as a specimen tree in the landscape or for screening purposes, but it is susceptible to a variety of pest and disease problems, especially in the Midwest.

    Austrian pine has two needles per bundle.

    • Native Area: Southern Europe, Northern Africa, Cyprus, Turkey
    • USDA Growing Zones: 4 to 7

    This slow-growing, long-lived tree native to the southern Rocky Mountains makes a great specimen tree in the landscape, where its small size is perfect. It is a dwarfish species that can be used as a shrub or allowed to grow to small tree size. The bristlecone may also be called hickory pine or Rocky Mountain bristlecone in some regions.

    Bristlecone pine features five needles per bundle.

    Western white pine is related to the eastern white pine, and is one of the largest of the pines, occasionally reaching 150 feet. It is too large to be commonly used in landscaping, but in its native habitat (the northern states of the Pacific Northwest), it can be found in the mountains and at sea level. Regionally, it may be known as the mountain white pine, Idaho white pine, or silver pine.

    This pine has five needles per bundle.
