Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Taxonomy: This species was first described as Pinus heldreichii, to honor Theodor von Heldreich, by botanist K. Hermann Christ in 1863 from a sample collected on Mount Olympus. In 1864 it was described a second time as Pinus leucodermis by botanist F. Antoine who was unaware of the earlier publication by Christ. For some time the two taxa were maintained as separate, but modern studies show that both names refer to the same taxon. The first description was as Pinus heldreichii and hence it is the accepted name.
