Pinus nigra (Austrian Red Pine)
15. At the southwest corner of the grassy part of the campus quadrangle in front of Cook Hall, where the pavement drops down to the grass, are several specimens of: Pinus nigra (Austrian Red Pine). This species has VERY long needle shaped leaves in groups of 2, sometimes 6 inches (15 cm) in length. I have no idea why it is called the "red" pine, since it doesn't have much obvious red coloration.
