Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi)
Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi) is a high-elevation pine tree that is native to California and endemic to Western North America. It is named after John Jeffrey, a Scottish botanist.
A wind-swept Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi) atop a granite dome in the Sierra Nevada. Fierce and relentless winds have shaped this specimen into a prime example of a banner tree or flag tree (a variation of krummholz), where growth on the windward side is killed or deformed. A waxing gibbous moon adds an additional point of interest in the sky. Eldorado National Forest, Sierra Nevada, El Dorado County, California.
