P. elliottii is a perennial tree of the Pinaceae family native to North America. 
P. elliottii is found along the southeastern coast of the United States from Texas to North Carolina. 
P. elliottii proliferates in wet pine flatwoods and maritime forests.  Specimens have been collected from sandy soils with virgin slash pine flatwoods, hollows between stable sand dunes, on bay shore of island, mixed hardwood swamp, pine plantation, open grassy field, in dry loamy sand of sandhill flat, longleaf pine community, and pine-oak-sweet gum woods. 
This species is thought to be dispersed by wind.
