About Bristlecone Pine
The amazing Bristlecone Pine is perhaps the world's most ancient living organism. The oldest living specimen is almost 5,000 years old — meaning it is more ancient than Stonehenge, the Acropolis, and even Cheops' Pyramid. Awesome!
Bristlecone Pines grow at very high elevations in some of the most foreboding and hostile territory any tree calls home: exposed, rocky slopes at elevations between 7,000 and 12,000 feet in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, and New Mexico. In cultivation, the slow-growing Bristlecone Pine takes on a form quite different from its gnarled subalpine brethren, becoming a symmetrical, even luxuriant tree, fully clothed in dense, very dark, shimmering needles, and growing to heights of around 25 feet. The trees needles are often flecked with white dots of resin, and its woody cones bear the tree's namesake bristles.
The astounding longevity and amazing hardiness of the Bristlecone Pine make it a fascinating choice for ornamental planting in a diverse range of climates. Highly suited to container growing and smaller gardens.
