Bristlecone Pine vs Swiss Stone Pine

Pinus aristata

Pinus cembra

Bristlecone Pine
Swiss Stone 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.

Swiss Stone Pine is a hardy, slow-growing evergreen. This long-lived tree is adaptable to many soil types. Due to its shape and density, Swiss Stone Pine is a versatile shade or accent tree.
