Product Information:

We are pleased to offer the Willamette Valley variety of the Ponderosa Pine this spring 2024.  Adapted to the unique environment of the western coastal states of USA, it is legend of a tree.  Genetically different from ponderosa subspecies in other ecoregions, it usually has longer needles (up to nine inches) and is suited to higher rainfall in valley bottoms, as well as drier slopes.   The WV Ponderosa though is not as cold hardy as its Rocky Mountain cousin.  Still, it grows throughout the western USA up into Canada.  It is also prized as a lumber tree as well.  Mature trees stand tall over 200 feet in the wild.  It is also one tough tree with thick bark to resist fire and a deep tap root allowing it to be extremely drought resistant.  It does well in most soil types including rocky soils where it is known to send its roots down between rock layers to anchor in.  The long needles and deep roots make it a survivor in the toughest conditions.  It is also valued as one of the most attractive trees for windbreaks.
