In Colorado has become a favorite ornamental pine and is planted throughout our community. Adapts well to many soil conditions and has a dense canopy that can reach a height of up to 60 feet and a spread up to 40 feet. Should be given ample room to grow. Fairly insect and disease resistant but is susceptible to pine tip moth and Ips beetle. As with most conifers planted as ornamentals it requires winter watering.
