Description

Pinus wallichiana¬†is a¬†coniferous¬†evergreen¬†tree native to the¬†Himalaya,¬†Karakoram¬†and¬†Hindu Kush mountains, from eastern Afghanistan east across northern Pakistan and northwest India to Yunnan in southwest China. It grows in mountain valleys at altitudes of 1800‚Äď4300¬†m (rarely as low as 1200¬†m), reaching 30‚Äď50¬†m (98‚Äď164¬†ft) in height. It favours a¬†temperate climate¬†with dry winters and wet summers. In Pashto, it is known as¬†Nishtar.[2]

This tree is often known as¬†Bhutan pine,[3]¬†(not to be confused with the recently described Bhutan white pine,¬†Pinus bhutanica, a closely related species). Other names include¬†blue pine,[3]¬†Himalayan pine[3]¬†and¬†Himalayan white pine.[3]¬†In the past, it was also known by the invalid botanic names¬†Pinus griffithii¬†McClelland or “Pinus excelsa”¬†Wall.,¬†Pinus chylla¬†Lodd.¬†when the tree became available through the European nursery trade in 1836, nine years after the Danish botanist¬†Nathaniel Wallich¬†(1784~1856) first introduced seeds to England.

The¬†leaves¬†(“needles”) are in fascicles (bundles) of five and are 12‚Äď18¬†cm long. They are noted for being flexible along their length, and often droop gracefully. The cones are long and slender, 16‚Äď32¬†cm, yellow-buff when mature, with thin scales; the seeds are 5‚Äď6¬†mm long with a 20‚Äď30¬†mm wing.

Typical habitats are mountain screes and glacier forelands, but they will also form old-growth forests as the primary species or in mixed forests with deodar, birch, spruce, and fir. In some places, it reaches the tree line.
