Scotch pine, commonly known as Scots pine, is a North American introduced plant that was presumably imported here from Europe during colonial times. Mature trees may reach a height of 35 metres and survive for up to 700 years. The bark is a scaly orange-brown with plates and cracks that grow with age. Twigs are hairless and green-brown in colour. The blue-green, somewhat twisted needle-like leaves grow in pairs on short side branches. The Scots pine is monoecious, which means it produces both male and female blooms on the same tree. At the base of the stalks, male flowers consist of clusters of yellow anthers. Female flowers are tiny, globular, red-purple blooms that develop at the tops of young stems.
