The results of studies carried out in 1988–2016 are presented, from April to October in the Botanical Garden of Petrozavodsk State University (South Karelia, middle taiga subzone). The objects of research were representatives of 4 introduced species of the genus Pinus: P. strobus L., P. montana Mill., P. pu-mila (Pall.) Regel., P. sibirica Du Tour. The timing of the onset of almost all phenophases in the species of the species Pinus under study largely depends on the current temperature regime

A straight-forward correlation was found between the dynamics of the studied environmental factors and the timing of the onset of phenophases. The earliest dates of the onset and end of phenophases were noted in P. pu-mila, and the latest in P. strobus. A comprehensive assessment of the prospects of the studied species made it possible to establish that P. sibirica, P. montana, and P. pumila (58–65 points) are quite promis-ing, and P. strobus are promising (57 points). These species can be recommended for introduction into cultural communities and landscaping of settlements with a low degree of pollution by pollutants.
