    Description

    The most noteworthy feature of Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi Grev. & Balf. ) is its similarity in appearance and behavior to ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.), a much more widespread and better known species. At one time Jeffrey pine was considered to be a variety of ponderosa pine, and lumber markets make no distinction between the two species because their wood differs little in structure and properties. Because of the apparent similarity of silvical characteristics and wood, usually no distinction has been made between the two species in either management or research records.
