A stand of Lodgepole pine tress (pinus contorta) in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Growing in densely populated forests, the long, straight and lightweight characteristics of the tree make it ideal for many uses, including Native American Tepee lodge construction. The thin-barked species of pine tree depends  heavily on fire for regeneration.
