Ponderosa Pine Seedlings

[Pinus ponderosa]
[a.k.a. Ponderosa White Pine, Western Red Pine, Pitch Pine]

The famous Ponderosa Pine is valued for its fast growth, reaching up to 125 ft or more at maturity, and can often be seen used as borders along highways. Its excellent green ornamental color and wonderful pine fragrance make it a popular choice for ornamental plantings, but plan accordingly for the towering height when fully grown. As it matures, it drops lower needles and branches and takes on a very straight, columnar trunk. The Ponderosa Pine is a good choice for erosion control, with a robust root system. However, it needs well draining soil and does quite well in poor, sandy and rocky soils. Not recommended for wet or heavy dark soils. These soil preferences naturally make the Ponderosa Pine fairly drought tolerant and therefore should not be overwatered. It thrives in acidic soils, and should not be planted in alkaline soils unless you want to put in the work of amending the soil.

The needles and bark of the Ponderosa Pine are very popular with a wide range of birds and small animals, who make nests and homes from these materials. The very high treetops combined with very little lower branches make it a perfect vantage point for birds of prey. The thick bark is resistant to small groundfires which clear out underbrush.

The Ponderosa Pine is susceptible to bark beetles and pine budworm, so keep your eyes open for these annual threats. It generally takes several years of sustained attack on already weakened trees to cause real problems.

It is one of the most important species for timber production in North America, with over a billion board feet produced annually. Examples of living specimens are over 500 years old. If you plant one and it lives to be this old, please let us know.
