Pinaceae (pine family) Pinus

Pinus chiapensis pinabete, ocote

Mexico, Guatemala

A young tree about 10 feet high was planted March 2006 just north of the Arizona Garden by the path to Quarry Parking Lot. It was near the Keteleeria, planted at the same time. Both tree species were new to campus.

The pine was dead in October of that year.
