Monterey pine (Pinus radiata) is the most widely planted pine in the world. This species has become important for lumber and paper in Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and large areas in Africa and South America. Rapid growth (six feet per year on good sites) and adaptability to poor soils are Monterey pine’s key characteristics. The native range of Monterey pine is limited to small areas of California within seven miles of the coast. However, Monterey pine is used extensively in landscaping for screening and to prevent erosion. Rapid growth and attractive foliage quickly provide variety and contrast in the landscape. In their native habitat along the Pacific coast, Monterey pines are famous for their wind-swept, picturesque shape.View More
