Description This species is a small evergreen pine with short 3 inch needles. The needles are brittle and they are 2 to a fascicle(bundle). It reaches a mature height of only 60' x 20'Wide. It does well in sandy soil because it has a deep trap root. This makes it very drought tolerant. It should be planted in full sun. It can be prunned to be a great Christmas tree or landscape screen. Sand pine is my personal favorite pine for it has a ancient appearence and often has a wind swepted look.
