A hardy conical-shaped evergreen tree. The Plum Pine has beautiful dark green narrow leaves with light green highlights and produces edible fruit. It will grow in a range of soil types but does best in free drainage. Very suitable for coastal plantings as they are also resistant to salt spray! It is best to plant them in groups of threes for pollinating as they are dioecious which means there are separate male and female plants.
This is another tree that has been unfortunately exploited for its beautiful timber. The timber has a straight grain with light growth rings and has been used in the production of fine furniture, musical instruments and wood turning.
