The silhouette of Pinus flexilis can look very similar to Pinus strobus. To identify limber pine look for the dark, thick leaves and flexible stems that can be twisted and tied. But don’t do this on a cold day or damage could occur! The thick scaled cone with resin is also a good identification tool.
