The stone pine (Pinus cembra), also called Swiss stone pine, is a coniferous tree of the alpine regions of Europe. The striking and almost majestic appearance of the stone pine is complemented by an enormous adaptability and robustness that enables it to thrive at extreme altitudes. The seeds are misleadingly called stone pine nuts, but they are actually cones that are egg-shaped and up to 9 centimetres long.
