Pine ID (If you don't mind)

Post  Cockroach on Tue Mar 19, 2013 12:36 am

I got this pine last year from a friend's garden where it was growing between bushes. After "playing" with it and trimming (don't know if it was the correct thing to do but it's done) it, I still have no idea what it could be. I trimmed the needles to about half their original length and thinned some. It is growing very well and would like an ID if possible as I want to learn more about its specific needs.
Here is the tree.

I do not know why the pictures are not showing up. When I am in "post reply" mode, there are no add picture or any other options.

Pine ID

It would be impossible to ID a pine tree from those pictures, especially since few of us are familiar with the flora of Taiwan. And since it was from a garden, we don't even know for sure of it is a native species. In order to ID a pine tree, you really need a cone. I suggest you take a twig to the nearest large garden center, horticultural school, or college with a botany department. They can probably help you.

It appears that it has two needles per sheath so why not google for two needles pines of Taiwan? I did and got a few hits ...most interesting was this "Pine is a smallish member of genus Pinus native to Japan, China, Taiwan and ... The Japanese Black Pine is a two needle pine, meaning that the needles grow in pairs".
