Como Park

Located near the gateway to Como Park at the south end of Como Lake is this scotch pine.  Non-native to North America, it is also known as Scots pine in its native range of Europe and Asia. This compact specimen has a unique ‘bonsai-style’ form that exhibits a different look depending on the vantage point. The nominator, who has watched this tree grow for over fifty years, comments, “its windswept appearance, red streaked bark, medusa-like branches suggest it possesses a strong spirit.” A scotch pine’s life span is between 150-300 years.
