THE GENUS PINUS (pine species) IN NORTH AMERICA

This list is extracted from a wood-name list of some 26,000 species and 140,000 common names that I have accumulated over the years.

I have a belief, not yet supported by any serious research, that there are probably only a few dozen pine species in North America that are commonly cut for lumber, but I do not know exactly WHICH species these are. On this site I have broken out only a few pines with separate pages and lumped the rest into just "pine" (which I may change to "pine, misc" at some point. The list presented here is intended to reflect not just the lumber-producing pine species that grow in the USA but ALL pine species that grow in North America, just to give a flavor of what that list looks like.

Some notes/caveats about the species listed here and the common names associated with them.
