Plant 10 foot spacing for Shelterbelt purposes.  The Scots pine is one of the most sought after pines for Canadian Shelterbelts. A moderate paced grower, hardy, drought resistant and symmetrical when young.  At maturity, the orange-red bark stands out, amd the branches begin to sprawl out, which does provide ornamental value.

Tolerates bogs and swamps ; sandy soils, and helps stabilize sites with erosion issues. Does best in a sandy loam in full sun. Between 1950-1980, it was the most sought after Christmas tree.
