The Pines

This group of Florida native slash pines are located along the walkway on the northeast section of Lake Orth. Because of its rapid growth rate, slash pine is a valuable tree for reforestation projects and timber plantations throughout the southeastern United States. There are two varieties of this tree species, slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. elliottii) and southern (or south Florida) slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. densa).
