The identification of this 5 needled pine is not certain.  Introduced from the Himalayas   (Afghanistan to Nepal) in 1823, this is a relatively fast growing but short lived  pine   (to 150 years in this country). It has an open habit with gracefully flexible needles and long pendulous cones. The resin has a high turpentine content   and the plant is relatively resistant to air pollution.
