Description:
The Bosque de la Esperanza (Forest of hope) covers a very large part of the island’s north eastern dorsal ridge between Mount Teide and San Cristobal de La Laguna. The forest is composed primarily of Canary Pine (Pinus canariensis) which 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. During the late spring, many open spaces within the forest become carpeted with spring flowers, such as the poppies in this image.
