    Description

    Slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.), including its variation South Florida slash pine recently distinguished as a new botanical variety, has been known by several different scientific names. As a result, the common name slash pine is more precise and clearer than scientific names. The slash pine of southern Florida differs from typical slash pine in a few characters important in forestry, such as seedling, wood, and resin production. A study of the botanical nomenclature and geographic variations of this valuable tree species is therefore appropriate.
