Pinus longaeva 'Sherwood Compact' Mr. Andrew Sherwood of Gresham, Oregon introduced this plant many years ago as Pinus aristata 'Sherwood Compact', a form or the Bristlecone Pine.However, unlike most Bristlecone Pines it does not have the apparent resinspots on the needles. It appears to be a form of Pinus longaeva (formerly Pinusaristata ssp. longaeva) the Western or Great Basinform of the Bristlecone Pine. There is also a possiblility that it could be aselection of Pinus balfouriana (the Foxtail Pine). It is a narrow conical dwarfselection that is very handsome, no matter the true species designation. Itforms a dense cone, and is always attractive. It grows slowly, reaching 4 feetin 15 years. Zone 3
