Black Pines

Pinus thunbergii

We've loved Black Pines for as long as we can remember. They a full of character. As they grow they take on an almost wind-swept look. Very strong and easy to grow in just about any location, even in extreme northern areas.

Japanese Black Pines or simply Black Pines are an interesting, fast-growing pine tree. Its irregular growth habit adds character to the landscape. 


Full Description

The Black Pine is an interesting, fast growing species. Irregular growth habit adds character to the landscape. Silvery white candles in spring and rich, dark green densely packed needles provide year round beauty. An ideal focal point for the Asian garden, whether sculpted into an artistic shape or left in its natural form.


Planting Information

Never plant trees deeper than originally planted in the pot. Doing so can cause rotting of the stem and death to the tree. Japanese Black Pines are very drought tolerant, however they grow very slow without adequate water. Staking young trees is recommended. When tying trees to stakes remember the tree will continue to grow. Loosely tie the Japanese Black Pine with several twist ties to allow for growth. Check trees every three months and loosen as needed. If this is not done, the twist tie will grow into the tree causing injury. The one question that comes up often, “when is the best time to plant.”? For the most part, container trees can be planted year around, provided the ground isn’t frozen. Below Virginia many nurseries and Christmas tree growers field plant year around, weather permitting. When planting potted Japanese Black Pines, remember the only water source the tree has, is its small root ball, and all the water the tree uses must come from there until new roots can grow into the surrounding soil.
