Pinus Kesiya

 

Khasi Pine

Pine trees are evergreen, coniferous resinous trees. Some can grow to 80 m tall, with the majority of species reaching 15–45 m tall. The smallest are Siberian dwarf pine and the tallest is a 82 m tall ponderosa pine located in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. Pinus kesiya - Khasi Pine,  Benguet pine or three-needled Pine - is one of the most widely distributed pines in Asia. It can reach up to 30–35 m tall with a straight, cylindrical trunk. The bark is dark brown, thick and has deep longitudinal grooves. The branches are red brown from the second year, and the branchlets are horizontal to drooping. The leaves are needle-like, dark green, usually 3 per fascicle, 15–20 cm long, the fascicle sheath 1–2 cm long and persistent. The cones are ovoid, 5–9 cm long. The seeds are 6-7 mm long, and are winged.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Dig out an area for the tree that is about 3 or 4 times the diameter of the container or rootball and the same depth as the container or rootball. Use a pitchfork or shovel to scarify the sides of the hole.If container-grown, lay the tree on its side and remove the container. Loosen the roots around the edges without breaking up the root ball too much. Position tree in center of hole so that the best side faces forward. You are ready to begin filling in with soil. Create a water ring around the outer edge of the hole. Not only will this conseve water, but will direct moisture to perimeter roots, encouraging outer growth. Once tree is established, water ring may be leveled.
