pinus halepensis is a small to medium-size Mediterranean tree.
The bark is orange-red, thick and deeply fissured
at the base of the trunk and thin and flaky in the upper crown.
The needles are very slender, long, distinctly yellowish green
and produced in pairs.
The cones are narrow conic, long and broad at the base when closed,
green at first, ripening glossy red-brown when 24 months old.
They open slowly over the next few years,
a process quickened if they are exposed to heat
such as in forest fires.
The seeds have a wing and are wind-dispersed….
