Tree identification (Pinus -X-)

Post  Comp78 on Sun Jan 12, 2014 8:04 am

Hello all,

I tried to determinate which Pinus this is. But am not 100% sure if this is a Pinus Strobus. (maybe pinus rigida?)

The tree was put in this container by me about 15 years ago when living at my parents. Last year I moved and finally got some room outside. So I repotted the plant (although in same container) and figured to let it grow for some years before doing anything with it (wiring/cutting).

3-5 needles, max +- 8 cm

I would remove that moss from the trunk if I were you as it may well rot the lovely bark down there that has formed

In The Netherlands?

It's likely strobus.

I'd first get rid of that largest branch up top. Most of the others, eventually, but couldn't select from a 2-D picture.

You mean the first remove that "dead end" branch and eventually leave just one branch (the thickest)?

It looks like almost any five needle Pine with the exception of a couple of the grafted culltivars of JWP and Bristlecone Pine. I have some JWP that I have grown from seed that look just like this one. I could be Strobus, Stroboformus, Limber Pine, White Bark Pine, Western White Pine etc. At this age it is almost impossible to tell the difference without hands on inspection.
