FEATURED PRODUCT:         Pine Wood



Thinleaf Pine (Pinus Maximinoi) is a fast-growing pine, reaching 20 to 40 m in height and 40 to 100 cm d.b.h. The trunk is usually straight and clear of branches. This pine grows at elevations of 600 to 2400 m. However, in relation to growth and phenotypic quality, the best stands are found at 800 to 1500 m, on seaward-facing slopes, with deep and fertile well-drained soils. Topsoil pH values typically range from 4.2 to 6.5, while subsoils may reach pH 8.0. Textures are normally sandy clay loams to clays for surface soil horizons and clays for subsoil horizons . The species grows in climates varying from temperate-warmer to subtropical humid ; annual rainfall on these sites ranges from approximately 1000 to 2100 mm. Mean annual temperatures vary from 17 to 22 °C. Maximum temperatures reach 40 °C, and minimum temperatures drop to -1 °C. Pinus maximinoi does not appear to tolerate freezing temperatures.
