The Sierra Pinito are a very nice range that at its upper limit has pure pine forest consisting of Arizona pine (Pinus arizonica). As with many Sky Islands logging took most old growth pine in the 40's and 50's, but in the late 2000's recovery is progressing

Interestingly there are dense forests of willow-leaf oak (Quercus viminea) in the higher oak woodland and lower pine-oak zone. This is near the northward distribution for the species, but this does not seem be poor quality habitat.
