Austrian Pine vs Japanese Black Pine

Pinus nigra

Pinus thunbergii

Austrian Pine
Japanese Black 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.

Japanese Black Pine is known for its unique and irregular growth habit, making it a striking landscape addition. It typically does not grow with a central leader. This causes it to form a flat-top, classic bonsai-like shape when mature. When it has a central leader, it will grow with a twisted trunk. Another striking feature is the white apical buds which contrast with the surrounding green needles.

The Japanese Black Pine is an excellent candidate for a bonsai tree and is frequently used by the bonsai community. It is found along the Japanese coast and is salt tolerant.
