The Chir pine is an evergreen tree endemic to India, Pakistan, and Nepal that grows to a height of 50 meters (164 feet). The diameter of the trunk might reach ten feet. The leaves are needle-like and 20-35cm long, with a green/yellow color and are arranged in threes on the branch. Pine cones range in size from 4 to 9 inches long and 2 inches broad, and are dark brown in color.
This is a popular tree for commercial wood production for building. It is also a winner for landscape usage in hot, dry climates since it's drought resistant.
