Pinus edulis
Up to 35’. New Mexico’s state tree. Growth is very slow, trees 6-10 inches in diameter may be 100 to 150 years old. Small cones produce one of the largest and tastiest nuts, prized by both humans and wildlife. The wood is popular for pitchy, fragrant firewood. Pinyon is native to the southern Rocky Mountain region, predominantly in the foothills, from Colorado and Utah south to central Arizona and southern New Mexico.
