Pinus sylvestris
Scotch Pine

Scotch Pine (also known as Scots Pine) has a highly variable growth habit in youth due to its genetic diversity and the lack of widespread usage of predictable cultivars. Its shapes range from pyramidal to upright spreading to irregular and scalloped (as shown here). In addition, needle color can be medium green, dark green, or blue-green in Summer, and characterized by a chartreuse hint in Winter, often indicative of high pH soils.
