Mugo Pine
Pinus mugo
Location: By driveway, but about to move.
Mugo Pine is a high-altitude European pine, found in the Pyrenees, Alps, Erzgebirge, Carpathians, northern Apennines and Balkan Peninsula mountains. An old name for the species Pinus montana is still occasionally seen, and a typographical error "mugho" (first made in a prominent 18th century encyclopedia) is still repeated surprisingly often. Widely used in landscaping in US.
