The Nation's toughest privacy tree

The Austrian Pine or ‘European Black Pine’ is the top choice for privacy trees in urban areas because it has a high tolerance for pollution and smog. Its foliage will grow together to create a solid living wall that filters out pollutants and cleans the air.

When planted as stand-alone trees or in rows Austrian Pines reach heights of 40 to 60 feet tall, growing large enough to block your neighbor’s view of your home while adding beauty to the landscape.

They have been tested in the country’s windiest areas only to thrive. Austrian Pines will act as a windscreen to protect your home and other more sensitive plants from being hit by powerful winds.

Low maintenance Austrian Pines grow where other trees can’t because they are drought tolerant and will adapt to a variety of poor soils ranging from sandy soils to soils that are heavy in clay.

With a high salt tolerance they will flourish near the coast and in northern areas where salt sprays are commonly used in the winter

A number of Austrian Pines were planted during the dust bowl because they are one of the only varieties that could handle the dry, windy conditions and nutrient depleted soil.

By being cold hardy to growing zone four Austrian Pines aren’t bothered by harsh winters. They don’t mind frigid temperatures that drop below freezing and stand up to heavy layers of ice and snow

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Austrian Pine



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Austrian Pine.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Austrian Pine gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Austrian Pine again after the transplant is complete.

I grew up in Monterey, CA, basically in a pine tree forest. I chose these because they are hardy, smell good, fast growing, can tolerate my clay soil whether wet or dry, and they live forever.

how far apart do you plant them for privacy? what are their life spans? thanks.
Judy C on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not plant them closer than 10 feet apart. Pines need a little more spacing then the Arborvitae and the Cypresses.
Can you prune them at a certain height to keep them more compact?

How fast do they grow?
Don B on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They will grow 2-3 feet per year.
