Stone Pine

I want to grow a few Stone Pines (Pinus Pinea). I see that there is a grafted one available but it is from WA. Will the rootstock be happy in my clay soil in NSW? (near Southern Highlands)

I can not vouch for clay soils which rootstock would be best. But I have heard for nut quality from the WA grafted ones are far superior in crop volume and taste to many seedlings.

I have seen stone pines uproot and fall over, they can be shallow rooted and may be more so in clay soil. It may be possible to keep the top down to advoid falling over in the wind. Have you tried ringing the supplier to ask about what species or variety the rootstock is?
