Pine Identification

These smaller looking pines were growing under some deciduous trees in N. Dallas. Could anyone identify them for me, please? Sorry, I couldn't find a pine cone for verification.
Possibly Pinus nigra?

Pinus nigra would be my guess also.
It's used a lot here in western Washington State.

Mike is right -- Pinus nigra, or Austrian Pine. Long needles, the platey bark, unmistakable. Besides, Botann is never wrong, especially when it's about conifers.

Love them, can't grow them reliably here because this area is rife with diplodia lately. I have half-dead ones who will be ugly their entire life until the infection finishes them off in a bad year. I say lately since some of them were quite large and nice until the last two decades.

MulchMama, I was very wrong just last week on a Sitka Spruce. I thought it might have been a Abies procera. I should have known better, given a little thought. :-) Both trees are all around me. Must have been early before my coffee. ;-)

That's it, Mike: come clean, man, come clean.

That's what I thought, Pinus nigra. I saw them growing under those trees on the side of the road and thought they looked great, had to verify. I thought it was odd they'd plant them underneath other trees, though. Possibly why they're growing more out than up.

Thanks!
