Marble Mtns Wilderness. ... The variety of conifers here is striking. I've never seen so many different conifer species growing fairly close together.
Your observation is more than astute. That region, in particular, the nearby Russian Wilderness actually has the most conifer species (18!) in one square mile in the world: https://www.michaelkauffmann.net/2014/0 ... ilderness/
Certainly a hidden gem.
