In the spring when Ponderosa Pine sap begins to flow their bark gives off a pleasant vanilla-like aroma that saturates the forest air. The dark yellow- green needles are 5-10” long and grow in clusters of three. The cones, similar in color to the bark, are 3-6” long and 2-4” in diameter. The needles are the longest and the mature cones the largest of any tree species that grow in Colorado.
