A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories
Austrian pine (Pinus nigra) is a moderately fast-growing, pyramidal tree when young, becoming a flat-topped, large tree when mature. Itgrows on a wide variety of sites ranging from clay-filled homesites to shoreline sand dunes. Heavy loads from snow and ice occasionally lead to branch breakage. This species is fairly tolerant to road salt and wind-blown sea salt.
