Bristlecone pine - Pinus longaeva

Schulman Grove, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, White Mountains, California, 9 June 2011.

 

This ancient tree is at the treeline of this grove, but at lower elevation (3117 m) than the treeline in the Patriarch Grove.

 

See my bristlecone pine set for many more photos of these amazing trees.
