Believed to be the first holiday tree ever decorated, the Aleppo Pine is one of the few live Christmas trees that is especially adapted to arid climates, which means that Tucsonans can plant it in their yards after decorations come down! Younger trees have the symmetrical pyramid shape of a traditional holiday tree, but as this impressive tree ages, it will eventually shed its lower branches and develop a tall canopy with a distinctively open, cloud-like silhouette. This tall canopy casts ample cooling shade, and makes Aleppo Pine one of the best overstory trees for our region. It also serves large landscapes as a windbreak, space definer, and skyline enhancer.
