The rarest pine species in the United States, the Torrey pine is an endangered species restricted to about 3000 trees growing in a narrow strip along the Southern California coast in San Diego. It is a broad, open-crowned pine tree growing up to 56 feet tall in the wild, with 11 inch long needles in groups of five. The species name torreyana is named for John Torrey, an American botanist, after whom the coniferous genus Torreya is also named.
