The Pines

This display garden gets its name from the tall slash pines which give way to a beautiful view across Lake Orth. A Florida native, slash pines are a major canopy tree for the pine forests of South Florida. This garden also provides access to the event field. Because of its rapid growth rate, slash pine is a valuable tree for reforestation projects and timber plantations throughout the southeastern United States.
