Scot’s Pine (Pinus sylvestris) is a species of pine native to Europe and Asia. It is an evergreen coniferous tree growing up to 35 m in height and 1 m trunk diameter when mature.
The bark is thick, scaly dark grey-brown on the lower trunk, and thin, flaky and orange on the upper trunk and branches.
The shoots are light brown with a spirally arranged scale-like pattern. On mature trees the leaves ('needles') are a glaucous blue-green, often darker green to dark yellow-green in winter. The lifespan of the Scot’s pine is normally 150–300 years.
