The oldest pines reaching 5000+ years, the pine is considered the great grandmother of all trees.
Wherever the climate becomes difficult and the soil becomes quite barren, the pine is the first and last representative of the conifers. One of their specialties is their water-holding capacity.
On sunny, dry slopes with barren, stony limestone soils, they are equally successfully populated and protected by their tufted, long pine-needles in low-nutrient sandy soils of dry depths. Spruce and fir trees would not be able to endure such conditions. But that is not all. Even in cold climates, the pine endures much better than most species. The great pine forests of the world extend to the far north and to the coldest regions of the Siberian forests.
The Significance of the Pine Tree
The pine is the tree that grows on barren soils and often in cold or droughts that would normally prove uninhabitable for any other. However, in the end, she produces an extremely graceful and delicate figure in spite of adverse circumstances. Her yellow-orange colored bark gives the tree an overall colorful, cheerful dress which is also held in the pinewood by its orange colored core. The pine's consistent beauty is important to our minds as it is the tree that changes difficult living conditions into happy endings.
Pinewood helps to bring sad, melancholic, and retired people's minds into positive thinking and restore themselves again with the joys of life. With versatility, she masters the most difficult living conditions. She is the strongest warrior among the trees and shows us that idleness and opulence have little to do with a fulfilled life. In addition, the great grandmother of all trees reminds us of the greatest wisdom she has learned in her long life: "Love thy neighbor as thyself".
