Description of the plant
The Scots Pine is a large evergreen tree, native to both Europe and northern Asia and can reach up to forty meters in height. The evergreen leaves are needle-shaped, grouped in bunches of about 3-5 cm long (sometimes up to 10 cm), glaucous green, twisted and with brownish pods at the base. The flowers form small sessile, hanging cones, producing reddish, globose and generally isolated cones, erect at the time of pollination, then hanging, which become cones (cones). The fruits are cones, oval, about 3-7 cm, with a very short petiole; initially green, then dark brown-gray: they are found in pairs or in groups on the curved stems. The cones ripen and release the seeds in three years.

According to the myth, Attis was a hunting companion and lover of Agdistis, a bisexual demon born of the union of Zeus and Cybele, and the king of Pessinunte, Midas, wanted to marry Attis with his daughter so that she could be civilized. During the wedding banquet, Agdistis, in love and betrayed by the young man, drove him mad for revenge, making him flee to the mountains, where the man cut his genitals under a pine tree.
