Tree of the Month – Aleppo Pine

The Aleppo Pine – Iż-Żnuber or is-Siġra tal-Prinjol

The Maltese pine tree is the tallest tree to be found on these islands and it is known to attain the height of over 30 metres. Today it has become very rare in the wild but could be still found in some gardens and as a tree in our streets. The tree has a very distinctive pine cone. The leaves look like pointed needles.
