This ruggedly handsome tree starts out with a pyramidal shape in its early years and matures up to a statuesque 70’ height potential and only 10’ wide columnar spread. The ‘Fastigiata’ is one of only a few Pines which make a nice hedge or screen of soft foliage. It is also a great choice for a living Christmas Treebute; after being decorated and enjoyed briefly indoors, add to your property each year as a new tradition. ‘Fastigiata’ grows rapidly, up to 3’ per year, in full sun and well drained soil.
