Pinus flexilis pygmaea, also known as the Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine, is a small, slow-growing tree species that belongs to the Pinaceae family. This tree species is a sub-species of Pinus flexilis and is commonly found in the high-altitude regions of the western United States, especially in the Rocky Mountains. The Pinus flexilis pygmaea is a unique tree species that grows up to a height of 10-20 feet, with a trunk diameter of approximately 1-2 feet. The tree is characterized by its twisted and gnarled branches, and short, dark-green needles that grow in bundles of five. The tree's bark is typically grayish-brown and has a scaly texture. Pinus flexilis pygmaea is one of the longest-lived tree species in the world, with some individuals known to live for over 2,000 years. These trees are known for their remarkable ability to adapt to harsh environmental conditions, such as extreme cold, high altitude, and dry, rocky soil.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
