This is a tall stately tree (up to 150' in height). It
has a wide-spread distribution, but is not common in the Wasatch
Mountains except where it has been planted, such as "The Spruces"
campground in Big Cottonwood canyon.
It has very long needles (6 or 7 inches), which usually occur in
bundles of 3.
The bark is orange-brown, and tends to thicken and form flattened
scales as the tree matures.
The wood is of good quality, and the tree is logged commercially
in the mountains of central and southern Utah.
