The Sugar Pine cones are 12 to 22 inches, the largest cones of any California Pine. The Sugar Pine is native to north central Cascade Mountains in Oregon, southward through the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and extreme western Nevada. It is also found in northern Baja California. Called “the most princely of the genus” by its discoverer, David Douglas, Sugar Pine is the tallest and largest of all pines, commonly reaching heights of 175 to 200 feet. Old trees occasionally exceed 500 years and among associated species are second only to giant sequoia in volume. The huge, asymmetrical branches high in the crowns of veteran trees bend at their tips with long pendulous cones, easily identify sugar pine, which more than any other tree gives beauty and distinction to the Sierra forest. For products requiring large clear pieces or high dimensional stability, sugar pine’s soft, even-grained, satin-textured wood is unsurpassed in quality and value. The common name, Sugar Pine, is a reference to the sweetish resin that exudes from cut or burned heartwood. Native peoples used the large, rich, oily seeds of Sugar Pine as a food source and the sugary sap exuded from wounds as both food and medicine, the sap has laxative properties. Leaf: Evergreen needles, 2 to 4 inches long, fascicles of 5, blue-green with white lines of stomatal bloom on all needle surfaces, persist 2 to 3 years, tend to droop, fascicle sheath is deciduous, apex pointed. Flower: Monoecious; male cones are small, yellow, and clustered near the ends of branches; female cones are small, pale green, round, and clustered near the tips of branches in the upper part of the crown. Fruit (Cones): Large cylindrical woody cones, 12 to 22 inches long (sometimes longer); yellowish brown when mature; scales thickened but unarmed; long, thick stalk. Twig: Moderately stout and grayish brown. Bark: Young bark is thin and grayish green later becoming up to 3 inches thick, reddish brown, with narrow, broken, scaly ridges separated by deep furrows. Form: Tall and straight evergreen conifer growing to 200 feet tall and 7 feet in diameter with an open crown and long horizontal branches.
