How to tell the difference between a Ponderosa Pine and a Lodgepole Pine. When looking at the two trees side-by-side, Ponderosa Pines will have longer, darker needles, as well as a courser, orange-brown colored bark when compared to the finer, darker bark of the Lodgepole.

Mike & Melissa - Great video once again. Yup, that's a ponderosa pine. Nice to see the antelope also, along with the many bison. Pretty hazy at one point so you couldn't see across the valley. Glad you are enjoying your trip. It is big, and wide open out there, but there is a beauty to the geography in your part of the country too. I love western Pennsylvania. For me out west and the rocky mountains is a clear indication of how great an architect our maker truly is. Blessings to you both. Hi to Hunter, Hannah, and Eva.

I agree with you! I love the trees. Sounds funny I suppose coming from an exlogger, tree faller from the Pacific Northwest. My favorites are Cedars, Douglas Firs, and Hemlocks. When I was falling timber in the 80’s, we fell Douglas Fir 5-6’ diameters, 150 - 200 foot tall. Old growth. We, the United States, have beautiful trees. Larr

Beautiful countryside. The bison are always a great sight, and that was a really nice goat you showed towards the end. Those were some really nice cedars and ponderosas, and if you are wanting to see some more very large trees, plan a trip out to Yosemite at some point where the ancient redwoods are thousands of years old and many are more than 20 feet in diameter. It'll blow your mind the first time you see it.

The guy from Men's Supply Co. is wrong about the needles, they loose a few needles from the inside out, called natural dieback. But keek there needles all year long. Conifers keep there needles year around, deciduous, leafy trees, loose there leaves in the fall as yours do back in Pen.

Hey Mike. I work has a forester in NE Wa. Yep that was a Ponderosa Pine. The Ponderosa has 3 needles per fascicle and the lodgepole has 2 needles per fascicle and the 2 needles contort around each other. The Ponderosa can get real big like that one there, where lodgepole usally are smaller and skinny. Back here the lodgepole usually die out fast and cause a huge wildfire issue. We have several logging operations in the area to help thin out these unhealthy trees. Hope the trip is going well. Take care and all the best. 6-D

Yes, you were looking at Ponderosa Pine. Another common name is Yellow Pine. The main difference between Lodgepole and Ponderosa is needle length. Ponderosa needles are longer by a few inches. Also, Lodgepole needles have a twist. That is why their scientific name is Pinus contorta. Lodgepole are a short lived tree; an old one being 120 years. Ponderosa live twice as long and they have a tap root. The cedar are called Western Red Cedar. Have fun enjoying land to the east!

Yes it is a Ponderosa Pine. Lodge pole pines are short and unhealthy looking. They propagate when burning in a forest fire. Their cones open with the heat. They are straight poles. Loved seeing your walk in the cedars. Went all the way to Avalanche Lake. We were burning and evacuated during your time there. Smoke just left today here because of rain. Sharon from Oregon.

I believe you were correct that it was a Ponderosa Pine, I was told long ago that the way to tell is that their bark is very thick with deep cuts. The Lodge Pole Pine were named for that reason, they usually grow very straight and fairly thin so they were used for the poles that supported the Native peoples lodges. Not sue if you will see any but if you see what looks like an Evergreen but the needles are turning like a deciduous tree it is the Western Larch. Always thought it was a neat tree. Thank you for another GREAT video! Enjoy all of your videos.

You threw me off in the very beginning. Thought you were now into scrap metal. The National Bison Range sure is vast. Too bad your sight was covered by the smoke and weather. You NOT weird Mike. I have the same issue as you. It's our work ethic and the feeling that everyday should be a day where something is accomplished. We're always thinking ahead to the next project. It's too bad that so many kids today don't/or won't have gained that from their parents. Be safe out there!

I hunted elk in Gardner, Mt. back in the 80,s. They refered to the hunt as a tennis shoe hunt! Why you ask? Because when you shoot an elk you better be wearing tennis shoes and run as fast as you can to tag it before someone else gets to it. Lol There are so many hunters hoping to get an elk coming out of Yellow Stone. I did get an elk! But it was on a private guided hunt.

As you were showing that clip I yelled “Ponderosa Pine!!” Then you asked and my wife laughed. Yes those are pondos. You can tell from the long needles and they lose the needles in the fall. You actually can’t cut them when you gather firewood in the National forests. Even the downed ones you have to let lay. The conifers like red fir (Doug fir), lodgepole and white pine all have shorter needles. I once lived on a property that had the oldest ponderosa pine in latah county Idaho at over 400 years old!! The forest service came out and did a core from it to find out its age. 1059 Teare Rd in Moscow Idaho. I’ll see if I can’t find a picture to send you. The Pondos usually drop they majority of their cones every other year. You’ll probably also see a lot of tamarack or western larch in this neck of the woods. Of the soft woods it’s the best one for firewood and it’s very pretty as it changes colors in the fall like your hardwoods. You’ll see them they’re tall and narrow. I’m fascinated by your knowledge of hardwoods when I go East just as you are by ours when you’re out here.

If you want to see big Cedars, go out to Washington, where some of the Cedars there, are a good 12 to 15 feet across the stump, & the first branch is over 80 feet from the ground. Funny, when you are in the truck waiting for Melissa. There's a backhoe working behind the fence behind you, maybe you could give some lessons !!! LOL !!!

That's a Ponderosa pine. Lodgepole are smaller in diameter and grow closer together. There are white pine, but they are found at higher elevations than you are. The best tree for lumber and firewood is the Douglas Fir. It has reddish wood and is quite dense compared to the rest.

I have been the the National Bison Range a number of times. It is a bit of hit or miss if you see much wildlife. I agree that if you take the time to look closely you can see a lot. I have seen bears, bison, and deer. I also enjoyed Glacier National Park. If you have the time there is a lot to see away from the road with even a day hike. Enjoy your trip.
