Point Reyes: Before the Fire

Bishop Pine
Pinus Muricata

Bishop pine is a closed cone pine, ranging in height from 15 to 25m. Leaves are 2 per fascile.

the species is found along the California coast in Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Humboldt counties; south of San Francisco it occurs in a highly disrupted range (including Santa Barbara County and Santa Cruz Island) as far south as Cedros Island and the adjacent mainland of middle Lower California.
