Bristlecone Pine

Species Pinus Aristata may be so named because it is somewhat of an aristocrat among trees.  Or, that is how I think of it because of the first 5 letters of the second term of it’s formal name.  This is a slow-growing tree that develops a thick, gnarly trunk in it’s old age.  In it’s youth it is interesting with its angular limb shapes.
