Bristlecone Pine vs Jack Pine

Pinus aristata

Pinus banksiana

Bristlecone Pine
Jack Pine

Bristlecone Pine is a small to medium evergreen with an irregular habit and contorted branches.

This extremely long-lived tree is relatively low maintenance and drought-tolerant.

It is known for its deep green to blue-green needles flecked with white resin, and its thin, scaly, grey-brown bark. Because it is extremely slow-growing, Bristlecone Pine is well suited to smaller properties.

Jack Pine is a cold tolerant native species that can survive on dry, sandy or gravelly sites.

Similar to Scots Pine, though somewhat larger, Jack Pine is known for its yellow-green needles, spreading crown, and irregular form. If you have a tough site to plant, this tree may be right for you.
