0002: Mondell Pine

Ray and I made another trip up to Potter Valley, this time for the main purpose of tree planting. I got four little 2 gallon Christmas trees on a 75% off sale two days before Christmas.

The first one we planted was a Pinus eldarica "Mondell Pine" and we put it on the property line, between the neighboring vinyard and my dad's future driveway extension.

Family: Pinaceae (py-NAY-see-ay)
Genus: Pinus (PY-nus)
Species: eldarica (el-DAR-ee-kuh)
