Description

Bristlecone Pine grow in isolated groves at and just below the tree line, surviving the harsh environment. Due to many factors including drought and wind, the trees grow very slowly. They can grow up to 20 feet tall but rarely spread more than 10 feet wide. Their growth rate is considered slow but they do not require much water so would be a good choice for a naturalized area in a yard. The oldest (non-clonal, acknowledged) living organism known is a bristlecone pine tree nicknamed “Methuselah” (after Methuselah, the longest-lived person in the Bible). Methuselah is located in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains of eastern California.
