The Lone Pine was a solitary tree on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, which marked the site of the Battle of Lone Pine in 1915. It was Turkish or East Mediterranean pine.
Pines which are planted as a memorial to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in Gallipoli are also known as "Lone Pines" or "Gallipoli Pines". However, there are at least two species of pine in that locality—in addition to Pinus brutia, the Aleppo Pine is also common. Branches from Aleppo pines were also used by the Turks to protect their trenches, and cones and seeds from Aleppo pines are common at "Lone Pine" memorials in Australia, including the tree at the Australian War Memorial.
The tree at the Lone Pine Cemetery at Gallipoli is of a third species: stone or umbrella pine.
