Product Information:

The Ponderosa Pine is a western legend of a tree and a native of Wyoming.  Famed for its aroma, 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 at high altitudes and low humidity.  It is also valued as one of the most attractive trees for windbreaks.  We offer the Rocky Mountain variety of the Ponderosa Pine which is more suited to the Wyoming region.
