So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don't do them justice - this was the day they were planted - 61 x 2l Red Robins - really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

  • They are medium to tall growing tree that can reach up to 35 meters and can be up to 700 years old.
  • The bark of is scaly orange brown with blue green needles (leaves).
  • The bark develops fissures and roughness with age.
  • These trees are brilliant specimens for biodiversity and provide homes and food sources to many different mammals and birds.
  • The flowers develop into cones, a stable food source for squirrels and pine martens.
  • They are drought and frost-tolerant and will grow well in dry soils.

Characteristics of Scots Pine Trees.

Type: Evergreen
Status: Hardy in cold weather, does well in drought

How and When to Plant Scots Pine Trees.

  • Plants are available bare root or root balled during the bare root season, November to March, or potted all year round.
  • Root balling the plant ensures the plant is delivered with the whole root system intact and ready for planting into the ground.
  • The root-balled plant is placed in a biodegradable hessian net and tied up.
  • The plant is then transported to the end user and customer.
  • Our Root-balled Scot Pine trees are approximately 80 to 90 cm in width and approximately 4ft tall.
  • We recommend planting the large Root Balled trees into a trench and backfilling with the soil. The trench will need to be about 12/18 inches deep to accommodate the root ball.
