Caribbean Pine

Pinus caribaea

Description:

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.[1] In zones not subject to periodic fires, the succession continues and a tropical forest thrives.

Notes:

In the photo of Thousand Foot Falls, you can see the pines at the tops of the ridges and tropical forest below
