A hybrid between the knobcone pine, native to southwestern Oregon, and the monterey pine, native to southern California. The first cross was made by the U.S. Forest Service for use in the dry areas of the Rogue River National Forest. However, they proved to be susceptible to many pests and fungal diseases. However, it is used today as an excellent choice for Christmas trees. It is currently being used as a reforestation tree in New Zealand along with its parent, the monterey pine.
