Where is Bristlecone Fir (Abies bracteata)
located in the wild?
Abies bracteata occurs both on steep rocky slopes, where fuel cannot accumulate, and in canyon bottoms, where there is an abundance of moisture. This species is thin-barked and highly susceptible to damage by fire.
Abies bracteata is found in the Santa Lucia Mountains on the central California coast, primarily in Monterrey and San Luis Obispo counties. There are also specimens reported from Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and Alameda counties.
