Description:
Situated at over 1000 metres altitude in the northwest of Gran Canaria, the forest of Tamadaba 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. Situated at over 1000 metres altitude in the northwest of Gran Canaria, the Tamadaba pine forest is often shrouded in mist, as moisture brought by the trade winds rises up the north facing highlands of the island. The Tamadaba nature park has one of the best preserved and most picturesque pine forests of the island of Gran Canaria. In this image carpets of ferns grow in the shade below the Canary pines.
