Description:
Owing to the prevailing NE trade winds, which bring abundant moisture and cloud cover from the sea, often shrouding the mountains in mist and producing frequent precipitation in the form of drizzle or light rain, the north facing slopes of Gran Canaria are very green and covered in a great diversity of vegetation. Here in the Pinos de Galdar forest located high on the northern slopes, ferns grow abundantly whilst the peculiar hanging mosses cover the branches and trunks of the Canary pines (Pinus canariensis) The Canary Pine is native to the outer Canary Islands of Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. It is a subtropical pine and does not tolerate low temperatures or hard frost, surviving temperatures down to about −6 to −10 °C. Within its natural area, it grows under extremely variable rainfall regimes, from less than 300 mm to several thousands, mostly due to differences in mist-capturing by the foliage. Under warm conditions, this is one of the most drought tolerant pines, living even with less than 200 mm per year. This pine is also one of the most fire-resistant conifers in the world.
