Description: Despite the presence of more than 500 native tree species in Puerto Rico, many efforts have been made to introduce pine. These attempts have been made because, compared to the native species, pine has a much wider accepted market and has the longer fiber necessary as a component of kraft papers. In addition pine produces higher yields on poor sites, and its silviculture and utilization are relatively simple. The latter two reasons alone would be sufficient on this island, where there is an abundance of degraded, abandoned agricultural land and a population almost completely lacking a woods·working background.
