Pinus contorta - Lodgepole Pine

Lodgepole Pine

From the western parts of North America, Pinus contorta is a medium-sized, evergreen, coniferous tree with a slender habit, and flattened, later domed, crown. The bark is thick and a dull brownish-black, and splits into fissures and plates as the tree matures; new growth is sometimes twisted. The yellowish- green needles, about 2 ½”/5cm long, are grown in pairs and are also sometimes twisted. The cones are also in pairs, about 2 ½”/5cm long and with sharp thorns on the scales. This tree survives on poor, acid soils and in rainy areas and is an excellent grower in Ireland especially on difficult sites.
Lodgepole pine got its name because nomadic Native Americans used the light, straight wood to support their lodges or tipis.
