It occurs as a disjunct, rare species in the Washington, DC, area, where it is a component of certain forests in the upper Anacostia watershed. There, "old-age Pinus pungens is well distributed, but produces a fairly small crown and canopy cover." (Simmons, et al., 2008).

Relationships:

Host to moth species including Pine Needleminer Moth and Nantucket Pine Tip Moth.
