About Japanese Red Pine at OSU's Landscape Plants site
Native to Japan, China, and Korea.
Record heights in wild to are over 160’.
Needles are 2 to a bundle and 3-5” long.
Seed cones are abundant, 1.5-2” long, and remain on the tree for several years.
Bark is orangey-red, becoming gray on trunks of old trees.
Relatively rare in Portland except for the small ‘Tanyosho’ which resembles a shaving brush when pruned.
