You are amidst a stand of ponderosa pines. These majestic trees which can reach heights of 180 feet provided a variety of habitats for wildlife.
Porcupines, pygmy nuthatches, red squirrels and mule deer inhabit ponderosa pine forested. Porcupines find abundant food food here in the form of tree bark, bud and twigs. A slow-moving mammal, the porcupine climbs trees to escape danger. Porcupines are very fond of salt and because of this, they are often killed on roads where salt had been used to thaw ice.
Ponderosa pine forest are sometimes the subject of attacks by insects and for this reason, the pygmy nuthatch is a very beneficial resident. A mere four inches long, this small bird eats insects which may attack the pines. Nuthatches are unique to the bird world because of their ability to travel head first down trees.
