Pinon Pines are one of New Mexico’s most recognizable native trees. Horizontal branches make for a bushy, domed shape when mature. Its needles, which grow in pairs, are short, stiff and dark green.  Its spherical cones produce seeds (also known as Pinon Nuts) that are prized by wildlife and humans as well. Pinons are often used as accent plants, and specimens with gnarled trunks are especially prized. It grows best in foothill elevations, but can stand up to the heat and cold of most New Mexico locations
