Bosnian Pine

This is another attractive pine tree, the Pinus leucodermis.  I have it placed in the front yard near the Weeping Pine.   By now you have probably noticed how many evergreens I have planted.  They can survive the heat and wind in this region (Zone 7). Generally the evergreens can also withstand browsing deer, but I fence many of them to protect from male bucks scraping their antlers on the tender limbs, ripping them from the tree trunk.  Also, during the winter as food sources become scarce the deer attempt to nibble needles from limbs within their reach. The younger the tree, the more tender the needles and bark, and the more vulnerable.
