Afghan Pine

Pinus eldarica Native to the Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan. Somewhat a mystery pine; may be Pinus brutia from Afghanistan and Pakistan. This pine was a gift in 2002 from my son, Chet. It has a happy home on our north ledge. It has done well and by 2004 has grown to 5 foot high. In 2006 it had grown to over 10 feet high. Bernice, shown along side the tree is 5 foot 2 inches. In 2007 it tops 15 feet.
