    Colorado's major tree species include bristlecone pine, Colorado blue spruce, Douglas-fir, Engelmann spruce, limber pine, lodgepole pine, narrowleaf cottonwood, quaking aspen, piñon pine, plains cottonwood, ponderosa pine, Rocky Mountain juniper, subalpine fir and white fir.   Ponderosa pine thrives in relatively dry climates and droughty or rocky soils because of its ability to acquire and conserve water. Its deep roots reach moist soils far below the dry, hot surface. Its seedlings withstand desiccation, and its stomata (leaf pores) can efficiently close, preventing water loss by .

Montane Zone-- In relatively low areas, usually below 9, feet, such as the areas near the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, at Sprague Lake, and along the Gem Lake Trail, ponderosa pine and juniper cloak the sunny southern hillsides, and Douglas fir blankets the cooler northern slopes.

Dept. of Agriculture. The central and southern Rocky Mountains include a distinct ponderosa pine vegetation type with an understory of bunchgrasses.

These bunchgrasses include mountain muhly (Muhlenbergia montana), Idaho and Arizona fescue (Festuca idahoensis and F. arizonica), blue grama (Bouteloua gracilis), and little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium). Ponderosa pine is a medium- to large-sized (rarely >40 m tall) evergreen conifer at maturity with a moderately dense, conical crown, long branches, and orange-brown, deeply fissured bark.

It is an important timber species, but open-canopy ponderosa pine forests are also important as wildlife habitat, watersheds, and for livestock grazing and. Silvicultural systems and cutting methods for ponderosa pine forests in the Front Range of the central Rocky Mountains.

Introduction. Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson) is the most wide-ranging pine species in North America [] and is both ecologically and economically important [].Ponderosa pine occupies montane environments throughout most of western North America, from southern British Columbia to the U.S.-Mexico border, with scattered populations extending eastward onto the Great.
