Plant Trees

  • Pinius Occidentalis: Native: Dominican Republic; Haiti
  • Justification:
  • On the basis of estimates of rates of exploitation given by Darrow and Zanoni (1991), a decline of at least 50% over the last three generations (100 years) is very plausible. As this decline has not ceased and the area of occupancy based on localities from comprehensive collecting of herbarium specimens (69 collections, 41 localities) and a grid width of two km (appropriate for a seriously depleted population) is well below the 500 km² threshold, this species meets the criteria for listing as Endangered.
  • Hispaniolan Pine is an important timber tree on its native island Hispaniola, where despite intensive exploitation it is still common. Its wood has good qualities comparable to those found in the more widespread species P. caribaea and is used as round wood for transmission poles, fence posts, construction timber, crates, boxes, and made into wood pulp for particleboard as well as paper. There is limited resin tapping for local use only. It is a tropical pine and even those trees at the highest altitudes in the Dominican Republic are not likely to yield progeny that can be grown successfully in cool temperate climates.
