This is a hybrid pine, a cross of Pinus ayacahuite (Mexican White Pine) which
has a Zone 7 hardiness, and Pinus strobus (Eastern White Pine). The foliage color and texture comes from the Mexican pine
but it has the better cold hardiness of the Eastern White Pine. Cones are long loaded with resin. Great plant for home gardens
to commercial and urban sites. Selected in the 1960's from seedlings at Yale Forest Research Center. This is still a smaller
pine reaching a height of about 7’ in the first ten years and has a tear-drop shape.
