For all you Sherwood Compact lovers.

A choice, dwarf evergreen conifer with a dense, broadly pyramidal shape. Needles are short and dark green. Pinus longaeva from the White Mountains of California are the oldest living trees on earth, nearly 5,000 years old. Prefers full sun in well-drained soil. 3' tall x 1.5' wide in 10 years. Hardy to -30 degrees. USDA zone 4.

Nice specimen, must be around 10 years.
