Pinus eldarica, commonly known as Eldarica Pine or Afghan Pine, is a fast-growing, evergreen tree native to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and surrounding areas. It has gained popularity in arid and semi-arid regions around the world, particularly in the southwestern United States, for its drought tolerance, adaptability to various soil types, and ornamental appeal.

Eldarica Pine typically reaches heights of 30 to 60 feet, with some trees growing up to 80 feet tall under optimal conditions. It features a broad, pyramidal shape in its youth, becoming more open and rounded with age. The dark green needles are long and slightly curved, presenting in bundles of two or three, which contribute to the tree's dense and attractive appearance.

Adapted to full sun, Pinus eldarica thrives in well-draining soil and is highly drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for xeriscaping and landscape projects in dry environments. It is also known for its relatively fast growth rate, adding significant height and presence in a relatively short amount of time.

In landscaping, Eldarica Pine is often used for windbreaks, privacy screens, and as a specimen tree due to its majestic stature and aesthetic appeal. Its ability to withstand harsh conditions, including poor soils and drought, makes it a valuable addition to landscapes in challenging climates.

Overall, Pinus eldarica is a resilient, attractive evergreen tree that adds beauty and shade to the landscape. Its ease of care, adaptability to harsh growing conditions, and ornamental qualities make it a favored choice for gardeners and landscape designers in regions where water conservation is a priority.
