Austrian Pine Tree Seeds
Pinaceae Pinus nigra
4 Year Pine, Thick Pine, Shepard’s Pine

Leaf: Evergreen, 4 to 6 inches long, flexible with two thick, dark green needles per fascicle. 
Flower: Monoecious; males cylindrical, yellow, in large clusters along twigs; females oval, yellow to purple. 
Fruit: Cones are ovoid, 2 to 3 inches long, yellow-brown in color.  The umbo is armed with a very short prickle.  Maturing September to November. 
Twig: Quite stout, brown to gray in color with a large white terminal bud. 
Bark: Brown to gray, developing gray-brown ridges and dark brown furrows. 
Growth Rate: On most soils, growth rate is usually 24 to 30 inches per year.
Form: A small to medium-sized tree with a very dense crown (needles retained 4 years) that eventually develops a flat top. 
Windbreaks: Austrian pine's symmetrical, stout, spreading branches serve well in windbreaks and living snow fences.  It may be used in single or multi-row windbreaks and living snow fences.  It is used primarily in windward (north or west) or central rows.
Wildlife Habitat: Several woodland species of birds utilize the seed, but it is not an important part of their diet.  Its greatest asset is winter protection.  Many kinds of wildlife find cover in Austrian pine branches.
Christmas Trees: Austrian pine may be used to produce Christmas trees.  It provides some variety to the more popular Scotch pine and is more drought tolerant, but it tends to develop slower than Scotch pine.  Typically Austrian pine is 8 to 10 feet tall before filling in to form a satisfactory Christmas tree.
Nature: Fast growth to 90 ft.  For screen, space 6 feet apart.  Is a good timber tree.  Comments: Austrian Pine will tolerate dryness, exposure and road salt.  The tree is not susceptible to diplodia tip blight and for this reason should be used in landscapes.  Young trees are pyramidal in shape, but become oval with age and, on some sites, flat topped.  Noted for its dark, rich green foliage, Austrian pine provides a pleasant contrast with other plants.  Young trees are pyramidal in shape, but become oval with age and, on some sites, flat topped.  Noted for its dark, rich green foliage, Austrian pine provides a pleasant contrast with other plants.
Austrian pine needles are stiff, usually straight, 2 to 4 inches long and are in groups of 2.  Needles persist 2 to 3 years.  Fruit is a 2 1/2 to 3 inch long cone.  The cone scales do not have prickles.  The attractive bark has dark furrows with gray or gray-brown mottled ridges.  Winter buds have a distinct silver color.  Austrian pine is native to western Europe.  Introduced to this country in mid-1800's, it has been planted extensively as a ornamental and conservation plant.
