Discover the beauty and versatility of Pinus strobiformis, also known as Border Pine, Chihuahua White Pine, and Southwestern White Pine. This medium-sized white pine tree is native to the high-elevation mountains of southwestern United States and Mexico, where it grows mixed with other conifers. Its straight, slender trunk can reach up to 120 ft tall. The soft, pliant needles are dark green to blue-green and grow in bundles of five, sometimes four. Its large cones and large seeds are dispersed by birds, particularly the Mexican jay. This species is drought tolerant and prefers a cool and moist climate. While it is not a good lumber tree, it can be used ornamentally, as a windbreak or Christmas tree. Native Americans used its seeds as a food source. Try eating them raw or ground into a powder, as they are rich in oil and have a slightly resinous flavor.
