Tree bark textures and patterns in the Maritime Pine (Pinus pinaster). All the images are from the same tree but in the first two of the five photographs shown here the bark is reddened and the cracks and fissures are filled with moss – these pictures were taken on the north-facing side of the tree. In the last three images the bark is thicker, coloured yellow and the moss is absent from the cracks – these images are from the south-facing side of the tree.
The Maritime Pine is a native of European south-west Atlantic coasts and the Mediterranean where it grows well on poor sandy soils such as those found in heathland and on coasts.

I would like permission to use one of your images.
Hello Karen. Please could you e-mail me saying which image you would like to use, and for what purpose, so that I can consider your request?
