NORTHWEST PINE IDENTIFICATION // JEFFREY PINE: -Needles: Occur in bundles of 3 (rarely 2); 5-10" long; often "bushy" along twig (often held 5-8 years on the tree). -Fruit: Large, woody cones; 5-12" long (much larger than ponderosa pine cones); each scale has a curved (J-shaped) prickle that curves inward. -Bark: Flakes off in jigsaw puzzle-like pieces. Older bark is distinctly reddish-brown (not as orange as ponderosa pine). // http://oregonstate.edu/trees/conifer_genera/spp/pine_spp.html
