Table Mountain Pine

One of the pine trees on the Appalachian Mountain ridges is the slow-growing table mountain pine (Pinus pungens). It rarely reaches 60 feet in height. It inhabits dry, rocky areas between 2,700 feet and 4,000 feet. It is sometimes called hickory pine because of its tough, hickory-like branches.
