Pinus ponderosa, commonly known as the Ponderosa Pine, Bull Pine, Blackjack Pine, or Western Yellow Pine, is a widespread and variable pine native to western North America. The ponderosa pine is the official state tree of the State of Montana. The Ponderosa Pine has a very distinct bark.
Unlike most conifers, it has an orange bark, with black lining the crevasses, where the bark "splits". This is most noticeable amongst older Ponderosa Pines.The tree can often be identified by its characteristic long needles that grow in tufts of two or three, depending on subspecies.
The USA Register of Big Trees lists a Ponderosa Pine that is 72m tall and 820 cm in circumference.
