This pine grows to be a rather thin, scraggly tree and aggressively establishes itself on poor, dry, upland soils. Its twisted needles are in pairs and about 5 to 8 cm long. The mature female cones are rather prickly and from about 4 to 8 cm long. In the spring, its yellow or pinkish male cones produce copious amounts of wind-blown pollen, and the female flowers (i.e., immature cones) appear along the sides of the young shoots.
