The Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis) is a Mediterranean pine endemic to the Mediterranean area. Pinus halepensis is a small to medium-sized tree with a trunk that grows to be 49–82 feet tall. The lower trunk's bark is orange-red, thick, and deeply fissured, while the top crown's bark is thin and flaking. The leaves ("needles") are long, thin, and yellowish green, and they grow in pairs. The cones have a thin conic shape with a long and wide base. To allow the seeds to disseminate, the cones open wide. The seeds are long and have a wing, and they are distributed by the wind.
