    Description

    Mexican white pine (Pinus ayacahuite) and Central American white pine (P. chiapensis) are two of the largest tree species in the highlands of Mexico and Central America. Pinus ayacahuite occurs from northern Mexico to central Honduras as three varieties: brachyptera, veitchii, and ayacahuite. Its southernmost variety, P. ayacahuite var. ayacahuite, is the most threatened of the three in its native environment. Pinus chiapensis has a smaller geographic range than P. ayacahuite, from central Mexico to western Guatemala. Many of the remnant populations of P. chiapensis are endangered throughout its geographic range. Locally, these white pines are used for rustic furniture and woodcarvings.
