Pinus ponderosa forest is a ponderosa pine procedural vegetation model generating forest shaped specimens (i.e., a tree that has to grow taller to catch the light and with more broken branches throughout the lower level of its trunk). The Rocky Mountains' Pinus ponderosa is common, found from BC to North Mexico at 300-3100 meters. A large pine with a regular pyramidal shape, it grows up to 50 meters. Often confused with Pinus jeffreyii, it can be differentiated by its smaller cones (2x smaller), larger size, and greenish needles. The ponderosa is an important timber species in the western US, but mainly cultivated as an ornamental tree elsewhere.
