Pinus pinea is a very picturesque tree, often seen on postcards from the Mediterranean. It is also known as the Umbrella Pine after its umbrella-shaped, wide crown. It has large cones, used in decoration and the seeds are a major source of pine nuts in commerce. It grows best in a light, well-drained sandy or gravelly loam, even on chalk but dislikes poorly drained soils and shady positions. It has very good drought tolerance and succeeds in poorly dry sandy soils and also tolerates maritime exposure. Makes an unusual bonsai.
