Pinus ponderosa

Common name: Ponderosa Pine

Non-native plant

Ponderosa Pine has large needles that look like Austrian Pine. Growth rate is moderate. Fits somewhat in the same ecological niche as Bur Oak. Ponderosa Pine is the savanna tree of the arid west.

We began an experiment with Ponderosa several years ago. Many of the plants were put in heavy clay which is dry in the summer and wet in the spring. The plants have done quite well in these conditions.
