The very first post in the UBC conifer photo forum is my favorite tree, pinus remota. Perry in "The Pines of Mexico and Central America: describes it as follows: "A small, limby tree 3-8 meters tall; mature trees have a rounded irregular crown while in young trees the crown is much more dense and pyramidal in form . . . LEAVES - mostly in fascicles of 2, occasionally 3, slender, flexible 3-5 cm long . . . CONES - Small, globose, symetrical, dehiscent and deciduous, 2.5 - 3.5 cm long and 3-5 cm wide when open . . ." Its found on a small portion of the edwards plateau in Texas and in parts of west Texas as well as in Mexico. Perry indicates most of the Mexican populations are in the state of Coahuila. These photos were taken by me on the edwards plateau in the summer of 2007.
