Pinus Wallichiana, Himalayan Pine

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 1800–4300 m (rarely as low as 1200 m), reaching 30–50 m (98–164 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 12–18 cm long. They are noted for being flexible along their length, and often droop gracefully. The cones are long and slender, 16–32 cm, yellow-buff when mature, with thin scales; the seeds are 5–6 mm long with a 20–30 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.
