Here is a large Italian stone pine growing in Tifton, GA on the coastal plain. You rarely see landscape specimens of this species in the humid southeast, let alone one that is clearly thriving...

From Late summer 2011

Think I'd call that 'semi-mature', but never mind ;-)

Point well taken Resin - but it is a "big one" for this region. Apparently there are larger ones nearby though.

Yes, that's not anything near mature. This is a tall species, growing over 60'. I have seen multiple examples the size of one shown just in my bailiwick, where it is sold as a tabletop Christmas tree.

Sometimes the needles are scorched by cold here, the point where this starts may be around 15 degrees F. Nevertheless, it has managed to produce persisting specimens 50' tall in Seattle.

About 23m tall and over 1.5m trunk diameter, if I remember rightly

I'd say! One of the largest pines I've ever seen (width wise).
