The Arizona pine is a big coniferous tree that may reach heights of 112 feet and has a straight, enormous trunk that can be measured at breast height. Young trees have a pyramidal shape, whereas mature trees have an open crown with a rounded top and broad, spreading branches.
Young trees' bark is dark brown, rough, and scaly, but as they grow older, it becomes thicker, deeper furrowed, and divided into huge irregular plates that separate into thin, densely appressed light cinnamon-brown scales.
Needles are tufted at the branches' ends, long, thick, stiff, dark green in colour, with stomata on all sides and coarsely serrate edges.
