Native Pine Trees in Florida

There are seven pine species native to Florida:

Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda)
Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris)
Pond Pine (Pinus serotina)
Sand pine (Pinus clausa)
Slash Pine (Pinus elliottii)
Spruce pine (Pinus glabra)
Shortleaf or Yellow Pine (Pinus echinata)

Below are photos of four of the seven, taken during early spring at Jacksonville Arboretum. All trees were mature and of similar girth.
