Singleleaf Pinyon PinePinus monophylla
This disease-resistant tree is a fine choice for home or woodlot within its zone. It tolerates drought and many soil types, and a shorter mature height means this pine works well under utility lines. In Nevada, this tree is recognized as one of the state trees of Nevada (the other is the bristlecone pine).
The singleleaf pinyon pine also produces edible pine nuts that are delicious raw or toasted.
