Pine tree of the Caribbean, with long needles From wikipedia: It inhabits tropical and subtropical coniferous forests, which include both lowland savannas and montane forests. Wildfire plays a major role limiting the range of this species, but it has been reported that this tree regenerates quickly and aggressively, replacing latifoliate trees. In zones not subject to periodic fires, the succession continues and a tropical forest thrives.
