A fast-growing and long-lived tree in the wild, this species is the hardiest member of the genus, though it is still somewhat tender in Britain, at least in the north of the country. It succeeds in most of Britain once it is established. The sub-species A. arizonica glabra. (Sudw.)Little. is a very hardy form, thriving in any soil from chalk to acid sands, this is the form most commonly grown in Britain. Trees are fairly fast-growing in Britain, new growth takes place from late May until mid-September and can reach 60cm per year on young trees. Cultivated as a timber tree in Italy and occasionally in other parts of Europe. The young tree has an attractive pyramidal shape and is widely grown as a Christmas tree in its native range. The seed takes two summers to develop. Mature cones often remain closed on the tree, only opening after the heat of a forest fire. Plants are subject to injury by the wind.Trees are notably susceptible to honey fungus.
