The pinyon pine is a signature tree of the inland west. It is an slow-growing pine for arid regions. In the wild it grows in the dry mountains of the southwestern United States. Its pine nuts are edible and were an important food source for indigenous tribe's people. These are the pine nuts of culinary commerce. The pinyon has a symmetrical habit in its youth but becomes more rounded with age. Its needles are in twos, dark green in color and highly fragrant. It bears beautiful small, round, nut-filled cones that are decorative and highly valuable to wildlife.This is an ideal pine for landscaping due to its small size and toughness. It performs very well in containers and can be trained into an attractive bonsai specimen. Its drought resistance exceeds that of the taller mountain pines, so plant it in high desert landscapes or extremely dry regions. It will do best in well-drained soils with marginal fertility. It is compatible with western sagebrush and yucca plant communities. Consider this a quintessential ranch tree that is non-toxic to livestock and requires no water once established.
