  Bosnian Pine - Definition, explanation
It is a member of the hard pine group, Pinus subgenus Pinus, with leaves ('needles') in fascicles (bundles) of two, with a persistent sheath.
Bosnian Pine cones are 5-9 cm long, with thin, fragile scales; they are dark blue-purple before maturation, turning brown when ripe about 16-18 months after pollination.
Bosnian Pine is a popular ornamental tree in parks and large gardens, giving reliable steady though not fast growth on a wide range of sites, and with a very neat, conical crown.

A pine affected by this pest complex will show a yellowing or rusty browning throughout the entire tree before the foliage begins to die and needles begin to drop, often within the year.

Bosnian pine grows extremely slowly and to date it hasn't been financially attractive for nurserymen to grow substantial quantities.

Of course, I have seen and admired pines all over the world and I've read dozens of tree books, but if these pages ever work at all it is thanks to the dirt under the nails that type, rather than the weight of research that goes into them.
The Corsican pine differs from the Austrian pine in the reliability with which it will produce a straight stem growing quickly, sometimes to as high as 180ft, with a narrow, conical head of branches, carrying shorter branches and longer leaves than its Austrian cousin.
The pines are sparse but monumental and able to hold their own against the ravishing scenery.

Thousands of trees, often all of the trees on a property, are dead or dying, in part because of the added stress of a record-breaking drought in 1999.
Locating substitutes for these pines is a top research priority of the University of Rhode Island (URI) Sustainable Landscapes Program, which has as its focus the reduction of pesticide use in the landscape.
Although Swiss stone and Bosnian pine are not as common in the landscape, URI plant protection specialists have yet to see turpentine beetles or pinewood nematodes on these species.

 Decline of the Japanese Black Pine
Japanese fl pine (Pinus thunbergii) has long been a favorite in coastal plantings because of its excellent salt spray and soil salt tolerance and its function as a wind screen and 'backbone' evergreen.
You may enhance the survival potential of your Japanese fl pines by watering them deeply during dry periods, fertilizing correctly once a year, and avoiding unnecessary pruning/wounding of the trees.
Landscapers are experimenting with Leyland cypress (x Cupressocyparis leylandii), Southwestern white pine (Pinus strobus) and Bosnian pine (Pinus heldrechii var leucodermis) The greatest attraction to Japanese fl pine in the northeast is its salt-tolerance.

Austrian Pine is a bold-textured and urban-tolerant (including Winter salt spray) Pine, having a broad-pyramidal growth habit with ascending branches and showy Spring candles, and often developing a flat-topped crown and ornamental bark with extreme age.

 Common or Red Crossbills
They are specialist feeders on conifer cones, particularly the various spruce species but also some populations (different species?) in Douglas-fir and various pine species, and the unusual bill shape is an adaptation to assist the extraction of the seeds from the cone.
Some large-billed, pine-feeding populations currently assigned to this species in the Mediterranean area may possibly be better referred to either Parrot Crossbill or alternatively to new species in their own right, but as yet, research into them is still at a very early stage.
These populations also differ on plumage, with the Balearic, North African and Cyprus races having yellower males, and the Balkan type having deep purple-pink males; this however merely reflects the differing anthocyanin content of the cones they feed on, as these pigments are transferred to the feathers.
