Get to know your Florida plants (03)

South Florida slash pine is one of the most well known natives in the area. This tree represents the South Florida Pine Rockland landscape, a very endangered natural eco-system, and because of its shape this tree provides an extraordinary spatial relationship with the sky. Generally tall airy with tufts of pines needles mostly at the top of the canopy--this absent of density allows other surrounding plants to receive sunlight and coexist.
