You must be aware of Pine trees as they are famously used as Christmas trees all over the world. But are you aware of the benefits this amazing tree provides us with? Keep reading to get an insight about Pine and its uses!

Pine, commonly known as the ‘Christmas Tree’, belongs to the family Pinaceae. Botanically known as Pinus Sylvestris, it is native to Eurasia. The tree being more than 210 years old, is also the tallest and an evergreen one. The height of the Pine trees vary from 3 m to 80 m. Majority of the species grow to a height of 15 m to 45 m. Among these species, Siberian dwarf pine and Potosi pinyon are the smallest while Ponderosa pine is the tallest having a height of 81.79 m. The tallest tree is located in southern Oregon’s Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. As we know that Pines are long-living trees, let’s have a look at some of the oldest Pine trees. Great Basin bristlecone pine, Pinus longaeva is the longest-lived Pine tree. One of the trees of the same species, named as Methuselah, is a 4,850-year-old tree and is known to be the world’s oldest living organisms. It is located in the White mountains of California. However, another older tree which is now cut down dated back to 4,900 years ago and is known as Prometheus. Some of the species of Pine trees have thin, flaky bark while some have thick and scaly bark. Moreover, the branches of Pine trees grow in regular ‘pseudo whorls’ which are very tight spirals. However, they appear like a ring of branches which grow from the same point. Some of the pines produce one whorl of branches each year whereas some of them produce two or more whorls of branches each year. Let’s talk about the famous cones of Pine trees. Pine trees grow both male and female cones which shows that they are monoecious. However, some species are sub-dioecious. The length of male cones is 1 cm to 5 cm which means that these cones are small. These cones are present for a short period of time. The female cones have a length of 3 cm to 60 cm and they take 1.5 to 3 years to mature after pollination. Additionally, the presence of resin is the reason why Pine is used for fuel as well as for making turpentine, pitch and substances used for construction. Since it is said that Pine is the tallest tree, it is also known as ‘The Master of Light’ and ‘The Torch Tree’ in many cultures. Historically, the needles of Pine tree were used as mattress filling as they were believed to protect against lice. The ancient Egyptians used Pine kernels to protect food from getting contaminated.
