Aleppo pine

Pinus halepensis (La Rosaleda, in Parque del Retiro)

This pine has a very thin, tall crown. It has reached a height of thirty-five metres with a crown diameter of twenty and a half metres and a trunk perimeter of two metres seventy centimetres. It is estimated to be two hundred years old, and may have been planted at the end of the 18th century. It is not very well preserved as the trunk is quite damaged and the surrounding soil extremely compact.
