Hainan White Pine Description

The Hainan White Pine (Pinus fenzeliana) has a very small region, being endemic to the island of Hainan located off the southern coast of China. It is also commonly known as Fenzel's Pine. This pine tree reaches heights of about 20 meters.

The leaves of the Hainan White Pine are needles growing anywhere between 6 and 11 cm. They are covered in woody, thick scale-like growths, with large seeds about 1 to 1.5 cm long.

There has been unsubstantiated rumors of the Hainan White Pine showing up in mainland China and Vietnam, but never proven.
