Afghan Pine Tree Pinus brutia subsp. eldarica

Afghan pine trees are commonly used as Christmas trees each year. They are easier to spot in the landscape because of their ladder-like branching structure. When young they look very similar to Aleppo pines. It's difficult to differentiate between them, but a difference to look out for is in the branch tips or candles.

Unique Qualities

The Afghan Pine (Pinus eldarica) stands out for its exceptional resilience to hot and dry climates, thriving where other pine species struggle. Its rapid growth rate, coupled with its dense canopy of long, slender needles, makes it an ideal choice for providing shade and wind protection in landscapes.

Afghan Pineโ€™s dark green foliage remains vibrant year-round, offering aesthetic appeal even during winter months. Additionally, its large decorative cones add further visual interest, making the Afghan Pine a popular option for ornamental landscaping and windbreaks in challenging environmental conditions.
