Pinus thunbergii, Japanese Black Pine (0.27m)


Pinus thunbergii, also called black pine, Japanese black pine, and Japanese pine, is a East Asian pine native to coastal areas of Japan and South Korea. It is called gomsol in Korean, hēisōng in Chinese, and kuromatsu in Japanese.

Black pines can reach the height of 40 m, but rarely achieves this size outside its natural range. The needles are in fascicles of two with a white sheath at the base, 7–12 cm long; female cones are 4–7 cm in length, scaled, with small points on the tips of the scales, taking two years to mature. Male cones are 1–2 cm long borne in clumps of 12-20 on the tips of the spring growth. Bark is gray on young trees and small branches, changing to black and plated on larger branches and the trunk; becoming quite thick on older trunks.
