#Burren Scots Pine Conserving our past, planting our future
These Scots pine are available in small pots or 2 Litre pots for planting all year round. If you have a Scots pine in a 2 Litre pot or larger it should have an information label and a coloured tag. The coloured tag indicates the parent tree from which the cones and thus the seed came from that now is a small Scot pine tree for you to plant. See the pictures below.
The cones were collected with the permission of NPWS and are accompanied with Certificate of provenance from the Forest Service (FS), thus they can be use in the FS native woodland scheme . For more info on purchasing these Scots pine plants contact us at email@example.com . The gaelic name for Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L) is Gius but Octac is also mentioned. Both names are rare in Irish place names but common in Scotland. It is believed the Scots pine died out in Ireland around 1500 years ago and in time it was reintroduced from Scotland, thus the reason we now call it Scots pine! Please read the following articles to find out more about the rediscovered NATIVE Gius!
