Wikipedia Abstract

Pinus pseudostrobus, known in English as the smooth-bark Mexican pine and in Spanish as chamite or pacingo, is a tree endemic to Mexico. It is 8 to 25 m tall, dense and round top, the bark is brown and fissured and smooth when young. It grows between 1300–3250 m. From 26° to 15° north latitude, from Sinaloa, Mexico to El Salvador and Honduras. It occurs within a rainfalls regime mostly in summer. A stand of about 15 fully mature Mexican pines is in Imperial County, California, at the Palo Verde County Park, in a narrow strip of land between Hwy 78 and the Colorado River.

Distribution

Mexico: Sinaloa-Durango border, Nuevo León, SE Coahuila, E Guanajuato(?), Jalisco, Michoacán, México, Distrito Federal, Morelos, Hidalgo, Puebla, Tlaxcala, W Central Veracruz, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas; Guatemala (highlands); W Honduras; N El Salvador. A considerable E-W gap exists at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, separating the Mesoamerican populations from the Mexican populations by ca. 250 km. The NW (Sinaloa-Durango) and NE (Nuevo León-Coahuila) disjunctions are separated from the main distribution in Central Mexico by similar distances.
