The foliage is gray green,lacy, fairly open and it is sometimes called the see-through pine. Native to dry, western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains and mostly the inner coast ranges. Gray Pine will grow in full or part sun and it is very drought tolerant. Its open structure gives light shade and if the bottom branches are pruned off, you can garden under it with associated/companion plants. The large seed is edible.
