Thank you for writing this article. I found it very informative, and I realized after reading it that I have been under-valuing pines for years. Your article gave me a new appreciation for the species, and a new tree to get excited about. I really appreciate your list of references too. Cheers.
Thanks for reading lazepherine (great handle!)! I'm glad it was helpful for you...as I researched while writing it, I also found a new appreciation for pines. Who knew they were so variable and wide-spread?
