Mr. Lemmon in a note to the Arizona Journal says: "This large and valuable pine tree, until lately was considered a variety of a certain white pine found on the Sierra Madre mountains, Mexico, but of late declared by the highest authority (Dr. Engelmann) to be a distinct species. This pine resembles the common sugar pine of California, but the cones are not half so long and, even when young, the scales are strongly reflected, suggesting the Doctor's new name for the species, "Pinus reflexa." It is frequently met with in the deer park referred to, also on a similar plateau on Mount Graham, and is reported also from several other ranges.
