This is a rare coastal pine that has proven highly successful in limited conditions only. It is native to the middle California coast and the Guadalupe Islands of Mexico. The wild population is shrinking, so there are now far more specimens in cultivation than in habitat. Planting this pine ensures it an opportunity to endure for future generations. One of its shortcomings is its strong preference for clean salt air and coastal moisture, limiting its use to a narrow band along the oceanfront. Its tiny home range tells us it is not particularly cold hardy and may be equally unable to survive extreme dry heat.It is a particularly beautiful choice for coastal communities where it takes on sculptural forms in wind breaks, for which fast growth recommends it.. It's vital to ensure stability with deep watering of young trees for this species tends to become shallow rooted without it and vulnerable to blow-over. Smaller size and a bit more shade tolerance is another benefit for coastal landscaping. Pine pitch canker is threatening the native groves in California but cultivated trees with adequate irrigation may prove far more resistant.
