A pine forest, Canary Island pine

A pine forest, Canary Island pine

Canary Island pine (Pinus canariensis) on the volcano's slope - amazing view - trees growing straight from the lava and in the background unusual rock formations. Canary Island pines can be really huge - grow up to 45 m high (sometimes even up to 60 m), diameter of trunk: 1.5 m (sometimes even 2.5 m). These huge pines grow near the TF-21 road from Vilaflor to Teide.
