Description: Growth habit, occurrence, and use. The genus Pinus, one of the largest and most important of the coniferous genera, comprises about 95 species and numerous varieties and hybrids. Pines are widely distributed, mostly in the Northern Hemisphere from sea level (Pinus contorta var. contorta) to timberline (P. albicaulis), They range from Alaska to Nicaragua, from Scandinavia to North Africa. and from Siberia to Sumatra. Some species, such as P. sylvestris, are widely distributed-from Scotland to Siberia-while other species have restricted natural ranges. Pinus canariensis, for example, is found naturally only on the Canary Islands, and P. torreyana numbers only a few thousand individuals in two California localities (table 1) (49).
