The Afghan Pine is a proven winner for our tough high desert climate. A native of central Asia and the eastern Mediterranean region, it performs exceptionally well in our alkaline soils. Once rooted it is drought tolerant and fast growing, making this evergreen an excellent choice for wind breaks and privacy screens. Its long evergreen needles grow in pairs, which gives it a softer appearance than other pines. The Afghan Pine offers a refreshing swath of green in the landscape during winter months.
