Scattered in the Santa Lucia Mountains of the Los Padres National Forest is the rarest and most unusual of all species of fir, the Santa Lucia fir (also known as the bristlecone fir). Found only in the mountains whose name it bears, the Santa Lucia fir is restricted to the upper watersheds of the Carmel, Little Sur, Big Sur, Arroyo Seco, San Antonio and Nacimiento Rivers, and in many smaller watersheds of the Big Sur region — always within 13 miles of the coast. The southern-most documented populations are located near Hearst’s Castle, in northwestern San Luis Obispo County.
Considered the “rebels” of the firs, the Santa Lucia fir has a number of unique characteristics that makes it unmistakable (and almost strange). Needles that are usually short, thick, and soft on firs grow to be two inches long on the Santa Lucia fir and are thin and dagger-tipped (easily piercing your skin if you grab at a branch too carelessly). Its cones are found only in the very top of the tree’s crown, which grow unique long papery bristles, giving them a look like a roosting hedgehog! They also have very narrow and sharply pointed spire-like crowns, which resemble the crowns of fir and spruce species of subalpine and arctic regions.
The tree can grow as tall as 100 feet, and is often found alongside coast redwoods or various species of oaks. It usually grows singly or in small groups. Among fir species of North America, the Santa Lucia fir has the smallest range and is the most rare. While population trends on national forest lands are poorly known, the Santa Lucia fir is not considered to currently be at risk of extinction.
