    Genus that includes about 120 species of evergreen, monoecious tree or shrub conifers, long widespread in the forests of the northern hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to Central America, in Europe, northern Africa and south-eastern Asia. Pinus pinea is a fast-growing evergreen conifer with a robust trunk and initially spherical foliage which becomes umbrella-shaped in mature plants. It has robust radial branches and orange-brown plated bark as well as shoots and ovate buds. The needles of adult plants are green, shiny, twisted and spaced apart. The needles of young plants, however, are glaucous blue and persist for some years. The fruits are large green cones, spherical or ovoid, which turn brown when ripe. The pine cones ripen in the third year and when they open they release the edible seeds, which are the famous pine nuts, highly appreciated in various culinary preparations. It can reach 15-20 m in height.

Due to its majestic appearance and the beauty of its umbrella-shaped foliage, it is widely used in parks and large gardens. It requires a lot of space to allow the hair to develop freely. Thermophilic species that loves warm climates but moderately resists cold down to -10°-/12°c for not too long periods.
