Daily Postcard: Ponderosa Pine Forest At Bandelier

on December 12, 2018 - 6:19am

The Ponderosa Pine Forest at Bandelier National Monument gets more moisture from winter snows and summer rains than lower elevation zones. Ponderosa pine forests are found at middle elevations on the Pajarito Plateau where increased snowfall and summer rains create wetter conditions. The Ancestral Pueblo people used these trees as roof beams for their homes and hunted the mule deer, which thrive in this community. Ponderosa pine forests provide important habitat for a wide range of species such as Abert's Squirrels, Red-tailed Hawks and Western Bluebirds. Source: Bandelier.
