    Would like to find out what type of Pine this tree is. Looking to move it out of container into the garden and am hoping to find out what species it is prior to picking its new home. Thanks!

    One of the white pines (Pinus sect. Strobus). The pics aren't clear enough to tell which (and realistically, you need a cone for identification to be 100% certain).

    General appearance of tree shown and prevalence of cultivar on market point to it probably being P. reflexa 'Vanderwolf's Pyramid'. This produces a broad specimen of full size, one I saw at the Yakima Area Arboretum some years ago was maybe 44' across.

    Appears it will need a very big new home! Thanks for the response.
