Pines From Around the World

By December 25, 2009

Follow me on:

Although other pines do exist in my region (northeastern U.S.), "pines" meant Eastern white pines when I was a boy. But my yard now is graced by a couple of oddball types of pines that bear little resemblance to those giants:

  1. Mugo pines serve as ground covers
  2. Dwarf Japanese pines stand at just 3 feet tall after 10 years

But that's just a small sampling of the world of pines. In her look at pines from around the world, Vanessa Richins, About's Guide to Trees and Shrubs, provides a brief outline on 40 pines from regions as diverse as the Mediterranean and India.
