Mexico: in a few localities in Tamaulipas, in Quertaro, Hidalgo, Mxico, Distrito
Federal, Morelos, Tlaxcala, Puebla, Veracruz, Oaxaca and Chiapas
as per Catalogue of Life;
 
P.wallichiana is the Himalayan Blue Pine, which is very distinct by its 5-needled spur as against the 3-needled spur in most other species.
The cones of P.wallichiana are solitary, very long and cylindrical as against P.patula which has several ovoid cones in a cluster.
The leaves of P.w. are not drooping as in P.patula

Again….another Pine variety?
Picture taken on the 24th of Oct,08 at Kodaikanal.


I think Pinus patula


Possibly. Is the number of needles per fascicle known? Also, a full tree picture would be helpful, if possible.


this is Pinus patula indeed which also called Mexican weeping pine.


Thanks a lot for the id.

Pinus patula Schltd.,
tree with leaves in fascicles of 3, 15-30 cm long, drooping, grass green; female cones conic-ovoid, up to 11 cm long.
Photographed from Chakrata.


This must be an introduced species. My unidentified Pinus now got identified with this post. I shot it at Naini Tal. Thank you Sir.


Yes, it is an exotic species from Kenya.

There are at least 40 species of exotic pines grown in India, out of which, four are most successful in plantations, viz., P.patula, P.elliottii, P.greggii and P.carribea.

Attached are pictures of a plant captured in Ooty in November 2013.
Requested to please provide ID.


Perhaps Pinus wallichiana


Thank you … for ID…


These are Pinus patulaThe drooping needles are the identifying feature.


Thank you … for the ID.. Am a bit confused now with the 2 species…


P.wallichiana is the Himalayan Blue Pine, which is very distinct by its 5-needled spur as against the 3-needled spur in most other species.

The cones of P.wallichiana are solitary, very long and cylindrical as against P.patula which has several ovoid cones in a cluster.
The leaves of P.w. are not drooping as in P.patula
I am posting a photo of P.wallichiana for reference.


SURELY these images are NOT of Pinus wallichiana. NOTHING like it!  Is this species recorded from Ooty?  Flowers of the Himalaya does not mention its occurrence in south India.  I am NOT familiar with Pinus patula, which is a native of the highlands of Mexico. This pine has been widely introduced into and cultivated in a number of countries including, apparently, India. Are there are Native pines growing at Ooty.  I imagine it is the sort of place where the British may well have introduced pines from around the world and no doubt since Independence assorted pines may have be grown.

One finds quite a number of non-native trees at Manali, H.P.
