These hundreds of these pine trees are planted on either side of the road in a row.
The location is inland (not coastal) San Diego, particularly in location that's very windy (lots of prairies and mountains to gust up the wind) and hot.
The needles are about 4-6 inches long. When mature the needles are a shade of light to dark green. But the new seedlings on the ground usually put out bluish green needles.
My best guess is that they are ponderosa based on the straight trunks, long branches, and long needles. Does anyone have a better guess?
What other information is required for me to identify these trees?
UPDATE: The needles are in bunches of 3.
