Austrian Pine

Pinus nigra is a native of central and southern Europe and Asia Minor. It was introduced to the United States in 1759.

This is a rather sad-looking Austrian pine. It's suffering from Diplodia tip blight, which has obviously done some damage (dead branches, brown needles) and will eventually kill the tree.

It's a shame, especially because this is one of the sexiest trunks in the cemetery.
