Organic Maritime Pine

Pinus pinaster

Botanical Properties

Maritime pine is a coniferous tree that has dark green, evergreen needles, and can reach up to 30m in height. It belongs to the Pinaceae family. These pine trees appreciate non calcareous soils that are exposed to sunlight, and in the right conditions can live for over 500 years. An individual pine tree has both male and female reproductive organs which translates to their ovaloid shaped cones and means that they are classified as a “monoecious species”.

Origin and history

Maritime pine is commonly found along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts. It is found in the Landes de Gascogne area, where this species covers around a million hectares. It is also cultivated in Italy, Morocco, and in Portugal.
