I was told I was buying a blackpine but I don’t think so.
Thanks for the help
Not sure of what variety of pine you have, but it does not look healthy
Its a 5$ tree. So… I can fix that
Coolio, Sounds like you got it in the clearance section, I love rummaging through those! Sometimes you get some pretty good ones:evergreen_tree:
Whatever it is its back budding well which is a positive stick with it.
Good luck. Black pine is often used as a general term for 2 needles pines but I dosen’t look like a JBP to me. I don’t see any real definative trates to help me identify it. Sorry.
Howdy - this looks very similar to a Pinus halapensis I have and have been training for 5 years. It could also be Pinus canariensis based on the bark formation(very unique).
If it is P. halapensis - it’s probably in fine health - it’s definitely got lighter needles than other pines(I believe the sheath is thicker for mediterranean varieties, and therefore lighter in color).
Ryan has told me to treat P. halapensis like Austrian Black Pines or other ‘in betweener’ pine species that need multi flush work some years and single flush others…
Here are a few links from past P. halapensis chats:
Best of luck, BB
