Growing Radiata Pine

The Radiata pine is a towering, versatile conifer (up to 60 meters & up to 2-meter diameter), that is widely planted and seen in New Zealand forests.  It is a fast-growing, low-maintenance evergreen that is useful as timber.  Known for its strength, it can tolerate coastal to sub-alpine conditions. If not harvested for its timber, it can live for around 150  years.

Economic and cultural significance

New Zealand has heavily invested in its forestry in the last century.  Our forests remain to be a crucial and sustainable resource which is vital to our economy.  Radiata pine forests have become one of New Zealand's most valuable primary industry assets and have a strong  cultural and environmental significance. 

Where does it grow?

The radiata pine is endemic to southern California and northern Mexico.  It’s the most commonly planted and grown pine in the world and the most popular commercial timber species in New Zealand.  It can live in low to moderate altitudes and can handle little to high rainfall. The radiata pine thrives really well on free draining to moderate free draining soil. This evergreen conifer can withstand strong winds even if it's salt-laden and warm to cold temperature.
