Hey @Silas_Sancona or anyone who is good at pines...

Got any idea what this is?  Growing right in downtown Havasu.

Pretty sure this is Pinus brutia ( what is often sold as P. eldarica around the valley ) Pinus halepensis would be my next choice. Both pines have leaf fascicles of 2 or 3.

See - I was thinking the same thing about P. brutia when I first walked up on it, particularly since they're so common around here - but the things that got me were the branch structure, the overall growth shape, and the white-ish bark.  This is not in a lawn - and has not been in a lawn - so the bark is not white from hard water spray.  Most P. brutia I see (my neighbor has a giant one) have red bark.  I also always think of P. brutia as having a more open branch structure, like this (photo from Google):

Scientific: Pinus brutia var. eldarica (formerly known as P. eldarica)  Common: Afghan pine Family: Pinaceae Origin: This near threatened taxon is  endemic to Azerbaijan in southwest central Asia. Pronounciation: PIE-nus  BRU-tee-a variety el-DAR-i-ca ...

 

I certainly agree with you on the needles per fascicle, and also the cones.  The cones look just like P. brutia cones.  But this definitely looks a lot different from the other P. brutia I see around town.
