Shortleaf Pine occurs in dry, sandy or rocky upland areas in the Ozark region. This is a medium-sized, fast-growing pine with a short pyramidal crown which broadens somewhat with age. Typically grows 50-60' tall in cultivation, but will grow to 100' tall in the wild, with records existing to over 140'. Dark bluish-green needles, three to five inches in length, appear in bundles of two. Cylindrical brown cones are usually not produced until the tree reaches 20 years old. Attractive reddish-brown bark forms in scaly plates on mature trees.
