This small, very long-lived and slow-growing pine is perfectly adapted to dry, high altitude mountain communities throughout the western United States where soils are thin and moisture scant. A native of the high country of western Colorado, northern New Mexico, and northern Arizona, it is best known for its very long lifespan and the twisted, gnarled form of older specimens. Some specimens are more than 2000 years old. The most ancient bristlecone trees (approaching 5000 years old) belong to Pinus longaeva, a former subspecies of P. aristata. Bristlecone pine's short, sharp needles are borne in groups of five and flecked with white resin. They can be held for many years leading to a dense canopy. This tree is conical and quite bushy in youth, but drought and excessive snowfall causes mature specimens to gnarled and weathered over time. It bears its seed in small oblong dark purple-brown cones, which are bristled. Slow growth makes this a popular pine for containers and bonsai. It’s a good choice for planting in ski resort communities. Bristlecone thrives in cool climates at any elevation, but is best adapted to the Intermountain West.Info source: Learn2grow
