Description

While widely planted as an ornamental and used as a timber tree in the Southern Hemisphere, the Monterey Pine is native to only three, small, isolated patches along the central California coast while a second variety is known from a pair of small islands off of Baja California. The Monterey Peninsula, including Point Lobos, is on of those three naturally occurring populations.
