In our note on this pine it was stated that the timber was worthless even for wood. This must be understood in the regular forestry sense. It would not pay to grow it for wood it is too slow and too small - but in itself it is excellent firewood, bringing $2 per cord more than other firewood in Nevada. It may also be remarked that it is the variety with the "needles" consolidated (Pinus monophylla), which grows west of the Rocky Mountains, and that this form is a still more slow grower than the typical P. edulis.
