What kind of Pine family?

Asked August 21, 2017, 11:22 AM EDT

What kind of tree are they? Pine family? Why are they so short, dwarf? I pass by them every day on my way to Shady Grove Metro. They situate on the intersection of 355 & Montgomery Village, i guess. Thanks for educate me.

We viewed your photos. We do not have enough information to accurately identify the type of pine. We would have to see photos of a close up of the needles, how many needles per bundle, cones,. etc.
Some reasons why the tree is growing this way can be due to environmental factors such as wind, traffic, salt, and the tree is growing in a restricted root zone.
