Short-leaved species. I am sitting on the ground beneath a tree 24 ft. h. and 6 ft. 6 in. circ. at 4 ft. It casts a rather dense shade, very little of the sun's rays get rhrough, on account of the numerous arms rather than the foliage. It makes a better and more grateful shade than Pinus sabiniana. Sitting here on the ground studying flower parts under a lens is a pleasant occupation. When one's eyes tire there are the desert ranges stretching out one beyond another
