Austrian Pine vs Bristlecone Pine

Pinus nigra

Pinus aristata

Austrian Pine
Bristlecone Pine

Austrian Pine is a medium-sized evergreen known for its dense rounded crown and long needles.

This moderately fast growing tree adds year-round colour to your yard and tends to be resistant the effects of snow, ice, and pollution.

Bristlecone Pine is a small to medium evergreen with an irregular habit and contorted branches.

This extremely long-lived tree is relatively low maintenance and drought-tolerant.

It is known for its deep green to blue-green needles flecked with white resin, and its thin, scaly, grey-brown bark. Because it is extremely slow-growing, Bristlecone Pine is well suited to smaller properties.
