Canary Island pine is an evergreen coniferous tree with a straight stem and a crown of uniform, candelabra-like upswept branches that grows to mature heights of 125 feet. When young, it has a narrow conic shape that widens to a broadly ovoid-conic structure before becoming irregular and dense with age. The bark is striped red-brown and buff and is thick, scaly, and fissured. On strong young trees, branching is typically uninodal, but it can sometimes be multinodal. The shoots are sturdy, thick, rough, and buff to yellow-brown in colour. Winter buds are big, cylindric to ovoid-acute in form, with red-brown scales with long free, revolute points fringed with white hairs, and red-brown scales with long free, revolute tips.
