Genus Pinus is the largest group of conifers in the world, one hundred and thirteen species all evergreen trees or shrubs. It is almost an entirely northern hemisphere genus. There is no fossil record in the southern hemisphere and only one species just crosses the equator in northern Sumatra. Pinus species have attractive bark, developing an irregular outline with age and bearing long needle-like leaves in bundles of two, three or five; conspicuous cones may fall or remain on the tree for years.
