Pinus nigra (Austrian Pine, European Black Pine) : One of the most popular pine trees is Pinus nigra, which is native to Austria and the Balkans. This hardy evergreen thrives in a variety of situations, making it perfect for screening and windbreaks while also being tolerant of urban, coastal, and exposed settings. When young, the tree has a conical shape, but as it grows older, the development slows and the tree's shape broadens and becomes more irregular. It will stand between 25 and 30 meters tall. The stiff needles are grouped in pairs, and the tree has a denser habit than Scots Pine. The bark is grayish, fissured, and covered with silvery plates.
