Pinus Pinea

It is a tree from the pine family. The tree is native to the Mediterranean region , occurring in Southern Europe and the Levant. It is also naturalized in North Africa, the Canary Islands, South Africa and New South Wales. The Species was introduced into North Africa millennia ago, such a lomg time that it essentially indistinguishable from being native.

Stone pines have been used and cultivated for their edible pine nuts since prehistoric times. They are widespread in horticultural cultivation as ornamental trees, planted in gardens and parks around the world. 

It is a coniferous evergreen tree that can exceed 25 metres in height, but 12–20 metres is more typical. In youth, it is a bushy globe, in mid-age an umbrella canopy on a thick trunk, and, in maturity, a broad and flat crown over 8 metres in width.pine_it_stone.jpg

Drawing on its level , the section of the trunk and the sections of the canopy


Now use Create Form to create the trunk and locked with a padlock to the level.


To create the foliage select sections and click on Create Form > Solid Form

but they were planted too close to the building, not considering the manner of growth of the roots of such trees and the
