Pinus thunbergii 'Thunderhead' is a stunning cultivar of Japanese Black Pine, characterized by its unique and eye-catching form. This slow-growing evergreen tree typically reaches a height of 15-20 feet and a spread of 8-12 feet, with a dense and compact habit. The foliage is a vibrant green color, with short, twisted needles that give it a distinct and textured appearance. What really sets 'Thunderhead' apart, however, is its distinctive shape. As it matures, the tree develops a broad, conical crown with an irregular, layered structure, giving it a dynamic and visually striking silhouette. The bark is also notable, with dark, deeply grooved ridges that provide an attractive contrast to the bright green needles. Pinus thunbergii 'Thunderhead' is a hardy and resilient tree that can thrive in a variety of climates and soil types, and is well-suited for use in both residential and commercial landscapes. It is particularly well-suited for use as a focal point or specimen tree, where its unique shape and texture can be fully appreciated. Whether planted in a garden, park, or other outdoor space, 'Thunderhead' is sure to add a touch of drama and beauty to any setting.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
