Aleppo pine

Pinus halepensis (Real Jardín Botánico)

This specimen of Aleppo pine has a sloping trunk and a crown that is extremely high and displaced to the top, unlike the characteristics of the species. It has reached a height of twenty-seven metres with a crown diameter of fourteen and a trunk perimeter of two metres thirty-five centimetres. It is estimated to be two hundred years old, probably planted in the early days of the Real Jardín Botánico, at the end of the 18th century.
