Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Mountain Pine

Pinus uncinata

Some botanists consider that mountain pine is really a subspecies of Mugo pine. Considering how much variation there is in mugos this isn't an unreasonable view.

Mountain pine look like mugos on steroids. Thirty to fifty feet tall, usually with only one trunk, but otherwise branching, foliage and cones that look like mugo.

Very hardy, not very fast growers. Interesting specimen tree. Mine aren't very big yet. You may want to come back in two or three year's time.

Mountain pine stays green in winter.
