Arolla Pine

Arolla Pine: The arolla pine is a altitude-adapted conifer named after a small alpine village in southern Switzerland. Though it grows at high altitudes (2000 m) and low temperatures (-50 C), it is not a dwarf species; aldult trees grow to a height of 30 m and a diamater of 1.5 m.
It was an old-style beiz, or family-owned establishment, with arolla pine walls, a parquet wood floor, and an army of bleached Steinbock antlers mounted on the wall.
