Congrat's to Andrew but a special mention goes to Sno for knowing the species and variety, after that it was a matter of guess the height. :clap:

Gratz Sno for getting it right straight off & Andrew for guessing the height.

Hack, great tree, any chance your going to do a thread on it :?: I am keen to hear your experiences with this unusual species.

Thanks Hack , I tried to do your trick with the ruler to work out the hieght. I don't actually have one so I guessed from memory the thorns were 3cm long,close but no cigar. Great tree,can I ask have you ever had fruit on it.
Thanks Steven will do and thanks Scott now I'm in trouble have to learn how to grow pines :) .
Cheers Craig
