LOW- AND MID-ELEVATION CALIFORNIA NATIVES

Here is where we delve into the confusing and overlapping qualities of trees when classified by elevation. A prime example is shore pine, which is a subspecies of lodgepole pine, which grows to 11,000 feet in the Sierra. Alaska-cedar is another tree which grows at sea level in its northern range in Canada and ventures into California only in a few areas of the Siskiyou Mountains from 4,500 feet to 7,500 feet. Sugar pine grows from 1,500 feet to 9,000 feet.
