The first one Dax shared reminds me of a giant Mugo.

Dave, whoever it was that said you are posting too much is crazy. Keep sharing. Thanks for all your contributions.

Perhaps mildly off topic--How susceptible are these nigra cultivars to tip blight and the other afflictions the species suffer from?

RE: Pinus nigra ''Hornibrookiana'

Love 'em. I too appreciate ALL the pics posted.
