The Story :
Scots pine appreciates the moéuntains, the warm limestone hills of the south and the sandy, cold and humid hills of Siberia. As one of the oldest known plants in the world, it can reach a height of 40 metres, and generally lives between 150 and 200 years.
Its bark is grey purple and its needle-shaped leaves grow in pairs. As early as late spring, cones bud and their colour differs according to whether they are male (yellow) or female (red) cones.
Pinus is a name of Greek origin referring to pítus, pítta “pine, resin” or pix (“pitch, resin”). Sylvestre, is a Latin first name derived from Silva (meaning the forest).
In 1534, the explorer Jacques Cartier learned from the Indians the antiscorbutic value of pine needle extracts. The father of Greek medicine, Hippocrates, cited it for its benefits on the respiratory system. Under the reign of Louis-Philippe, Scots pine was planted abundantly on the moors and rocky areas of the Fontainebleau forest in France.
