Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis) is a pine native to the Mediterranean region. Its range extends from Morocco, north to Croatia, and east to Greece. In Israel it is called Jerusalem pine.
P. halepensis is a medium-sized tree, 15–25 m tall, with a trunk diameter up to 60 cm. The bark is orange-red, thick, and deeply fissured at the base of the trunk, and thin and flaky in the upper crown. The leaves ("needles") are very slender, 6–12 cm long, yellowish green, and produced in pairs. The cones are narrow conic, 5–12 cm long and 2–3 cm broad at the base when closed, green at first, ripening glossy red-brown when 24 months old. They open slowly over the next few years, a process quickened if they are exposed to heat such as in forest fires and dry north wind, in Croatia called 'bura'. The cones open 5–8 cm wide to allow the seeds to disperse. The seeds are 5–6 mm long, with a 20-mm wing, and are wind-dispersed. The Aleppo pine, is generally found at low altitudes, mostly from sea level to 200 m, but can grow up to 1,000 m.
