Re: Canary Island Pine

Great pine for dry foggy areas. The long needles capture fog condensation and thus the tree is able to grow in places normally too dry to support trees. There have been some efforts to use this tree in the desert 'lomas' areas of western Peru (where it hardly ever rains but its foggy most of the time).
I'm sure it will do well in Baja California as well.
