These came packaged well with planting instructions. Got them planted in the spring. So far so good.
these are great
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 is a Tall, Lanky Pine
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 are Great Shelters for Small Bird Spieces and are Great for Windbreaks
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.
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.
Ponderosa pine trees have tall, straight trunks with an irregular, cylinder-shaped crown. Shaped like a pyramid, the top on the ponderosa pine flattens out as it ages. Young ponderosa pines have bark that is reddish-brown or reddish-black and furrowed. Mature ponderosa bark looks yellowish-brown to russet-colored and scaly, with deep irregular fissures. Ponderosa pine bark is quite thick, which makes the wild tree fire-resistant. The inner bark of the tree looks either yellow or light brown in its heartwood. Ponderosa pines have pine needles that range from yellow-green to dark grayish-green. Needles grow in groups of three, though groups of two and five occur infrequently. The russet-colored, huge pinecones remain favorites for crafters and decorators. These pretty pine trees grow best in full sun. They have large taproots, so they prefer deep, moist soil that is well-drained. One of the main advantages of growing this tree remains that it puts down roots quickly, making an excellent addition to a property to prevent erosion. Ponderosas grow nicely in many types of soil, including alkaline soil. Ponderosa pines remain quite a drought-tolerant once they established. This environmentally flexible pine tree also tolerates:
• Low humidity.
• High elevations.
As long as this pine gets plenty of suns, a ponderosa pine grows well in many climates and areas. The ponderosa pine thrives in zones three through eight. The ponderosa pine grows from 60 to 100 feet when cultivated, and up to 230 feet tall in the wild. They reach up to 25 feet wide.
