SZ0095 : Broadstone's Monterey Pine

near to Broadstone, Poole, Great Britain

Broadstone's Monterey Pine
Broadstone's Monterey Pine
Another Broadstone landmark, this very large Monterey Pine (Pinus radiata), native of California, was once in the back garden of Burton House, long vanished. It now stands in the North East Corner of Broadstone's central car park, surrounded by cars and tarmac. With a girth of 4.27 metres, it has been well maintained by the Council. Look for the dense needles in threes and obliquely attached cones, which can stay attached up to 20 years and need forest fires to open and release seeds.
