Bristle Cone Pine

Bristle Cone Pine (Pinus aristata (Bristle Cone Pine))

One of two surviving Bristle Cone Pines.
I am growing it in an informal upright bonsai style. It was given to me as a two year old seedling at least ten years ago.
Bristle Cone Pines can live up to 5000 years old in the wild, at high altitude, however at low altitude they tend to die young - 200 years old.
