Design Ideas: A very resilient Pine for the poor soils or alkaline conditions in the Midwest and far West. It is remarkably tolerant of hot and cold wind and is a crucial component in shelterbelts and windbreaks. Adapts well to dry conditions in the West, both in semi-desert and mountain foothill regions where soils are thin and poor. Makes a very graceful single specimen for front yards, parks or expansive estate-sized landscapes.

Thrives in deep, average, well-drained, sandy or gravelly loams, but highly adaptable to a wide range, except soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates occasional, moderate drought. Apply fertilizer in early spring.
