About Ponderosa Pine
The mighty Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) is often regarded as North America's most important pine tree, dominating forests in every western state, and ranging into Canada and Mexico as well. Pinus ponderosa is known by many names throughout its vast range, including Western Yellow Pine, Blackjack Pine, Bull Pine, Heavy Pine, Longleaf Pine, and most commonly, Ponderosa Pine. In Montana, Ponderosa Pine is celebrated as the State Tree.
This impressive, wide-ranging species tolerates an amazing diversity of climates, altitudes, and soils, and can live for centuries, growing to heights of over 300 feet, with soaring, column-like trunks more than 8 feet across. A slow grower in its first decade, Ponderosa Pine grows faster as it ages, ultimately acquiring a magnificent physique, characterized by muscular branches; burnished tufts of long, green-gold needles (5" – 13"); large, cinnamon-red cones; and a regal-looking, almost perfectly straight trunk, richly clad in great plates of bronze-colored bark. Ponderosa Pine tolerates heat and drought, and is extremely cold-hardy. It can be cultivated almost anywhere, and is a beautiful and statuesque tree at every stage of its life.

Seedling Size Chart: Small
Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
