Pinyon pine (Pinus edulis Engelm.) is a long-lived, drought-tolerant tree common throughout the Southwestern United States. The pinyonjuniper forest type is generally located on rocky plateaus and lower mountain slopes. It is typically found at elevations 4,500–6,000 feet above sea level. Forests in which pinyon pine is the major pine species cover close to 40 million acres primarily in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah
