Picturesque with age, Pinus sylvestris (Scots Pine) is a fast-growing, evergreen coniferous tree of conical habit when young, becoming high-branched over time with a long trunk topped by a flat-topped or umbrella-shaped canopy. Born in pairs, its glaucous blue-green, twisted needles often turn darker green to dark yellow-green in winter. Red at pollination before turning gray-green, the cones point backward along the branches. Quite attractive, the bark is scaly, dark gray-brown on the lower trunk, and thin, flaky, and bright orange-red on the upper trunk and branches. A popular holiday tree, its hardiness, adaptability, and pollution tolerance make it a great choice for screens and windbreaks.
