Bhutan Pine 6554 – June – Right Front

Bhutan Pine  Pinus wallichiana. This pine native to Afghanistan to Nepal  was introduced into cultivation in 1823. This specimen was planted in the 1980’s and has developed into a wide spreading elegant tree and one of the most impressive trees on the NUIG campus.  The pine needles are held in clusters of 5 and are 18 – 20cm long.  The bluish green colour on the outer surface and blue white on the inner surface of the cluster are striking when lit by rays of sunshine.
