Pinus Sylvestris fastigiata grown at Barcham Trees, Cambridgeshire, UK

Caroline Vickers, Barcham Trees



Pinus sylvestris fastigiata - A wonderfully columnar form of Scots Pine, so tight in habit, that one has to get quite close to indentify it.


There are some nicely maturing specimens in the conifer garden at the Harlow Carr arboretum.


The needles appear almost blue when young giving it a highly ornamental feel.


Introduced circa 1856, it is naturally occurring in Europe.


It can reach over 10 metres tall if it isn’t hampered by snow and ice build up which can cause it to fracture.


However there are no such problems in the UK making this a fabulous choice for many aspects.


At the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, we have some 1m-1.5m tall trees in 45 litre pots available from 1st September 2019.  You can view and pre-order trees now for Autumn planting.


Mature height: 7-12m


Mature spread: 1-2m
