I was surprised when the trees arrived, as we still had snow on the ground. I planted them the same day. The trees arrived well packed, taller than expected, as some were turned down. I have one ponderosa pine in my yard now and hope to order more trees again next year. Thank you for great service.

Ponderosa Pine Seedlings - Pinus
Ponderosa Pine Seedlings are apart of a tall and lanky species of pine trees. While these trees prefer moist soil with a lot of drainages, they have also been known to thrive in sandy environments. The speedy root system enables it to cling to almost any soil landscape. During their seedling phase, these trees enjoy plenty of sun throughout the day. While older trees find shelter in shady areas, younger trees require full sunlight during their early stages of growth. Seedlings must also have plenty of water to reach maturity. Older trees can have less water once they are established. Mature trees have a full trunk leading up to branches packed with lush green needles. The bright green needles have a strong pine fragrance. They often grow bunched together and grow pinecones on the tips.
Ponderosa Pine Seedlings can reach a maximum height of over 180 feet tall with a branch spread of 25-30 feet.
Older well-maintained trees can far surpass this height if left to grow. Dark black cracks can be seen seeping through the bark of older mature trees. The bark, which is usually a dark brown color, changes into a scaly orangish brown shade during bloom season. It’s during bloom season that the bark can occasionally shed to expose new regrowth. The dark shaded Ponderosa bark releases sweet smells of vanilla and caramel during the late stages of bloom. Many small species of birds such as woodpeckers and bluebirds have also found these trees to be great shelters and homes.
Ponderosa Pine Seedlings are great for landscaping and backyard home gardens.
Many landscapers grow these trees to create natural windbreaks on their land or yards. Once mature, pine cones are often harvested for decorations during autumn festivals and winter holidays. The Ponderosa Pine has also been called the bull pine or blackjack pine.
