    Not enough information there to identify it to species, unfortunately. Do you know where it is from? Are most of the needles in pairs, or threes?

    The needles are in three's. I bought this tree last spring along with some cottonwoods, western red cedars, hazelnuts and garry oaks from a small home based nursery in New Westminster. The lady who sold them to me also has a small nursery on Saltspring Island B.C where she brings some of the plants to New West from. She did not know what kind of pine it was.
    If I can find out if this is a tree native to this area, I will plant it in a natural area I 'm restoring with native plants, otherwise I will leave it in my yard.

    P.S according to the eflora website, shore pine has needles in two's, and western white pine has needles in fives, so I guess it's not native to this area.
    Thank you Michael.
