Black Pine is noted for its whitish terminal buds that provide interesting contrast
with its slightly twisted, dark green foliage. In optimum growing conditions,
this tree will grow in a generally conical form to 100 feet tall, spreading
somewhat irregularly with age. In cultivation, it is more often seen at 20 to
60 feet tall. Evergreen needles to 4.5 inches long in bundles of two are an
attractive dark green. Young foliage candles are upright and cones are brown to
2.5 inches long. As the tree ages, bark turns dark purplish-gray and fissures
into plates. Although trees may or may not have a central leader, prune to
develop one if the tree will be grown to a large size. Branches are held
horizontally in a picturesque silhouette and sometimes can outgrow the central
leader forming an attractive multi stemmed specimen tree. It is probably best
used in this way.
