*Pinus thunbergii Parlatore. Subgenus: Pinus. Section: Pinus. Subsection: Pinus. Japanese Black Pine. Hab: Planted and persisting, sometimes appearing native, on barrier islands. Dist: Native of Japan.

ID notes:A short pine with distinctively dark green needles.

Other Comments: Growing in maritime situations in its native land, this tree's strong resistance to salt spray is the reason for its horticultural use in our area. Following moderate storm events on the coast, P. thunbergii's needles remain green and undamaged, even when needles of P. taeda, native to such situations, are salt-killed.
