It is a tree with narrow foliage, growing to 40-50 m of height.

The leaves are needle-like, falling slightly during the autumn. The cones are roundish or elongate. It should be planted on light, fertile, quite humid soil. It is photophilous. It needs much space to grow. It looks beautiful in parks as a single growing tree.

It is vulnerable to drought. Adult ones are resistant to frosts, however young seedlings should be protected in the winter. It tolerates air pollution. Apart from its decorative value, it is valuable because of its quick growth.

It tolerates pruning and cutting very well, that’s why is used in hedges. Grafted trees look beautifully in rockery gardens and in heathlands.
