Help to find Island Torrey pine
« on: November 18, 2015, 04:51 AM »

Americas rarest pine tree Torrey Pine has an even harder to find offshore island subspecies Pinus torreyana insularis.  These are an exclusively SW California native.  Please can anyone help me find or can you obtain seedlings or even a good cone or seeds of this tree?  I've searched every way I can on the internet and phone including contacting several Cal nurseries and even the forest service with no luck :(.  Please reply to my post or send a PM on this site.  Thank you.

for that variety I have no clue; perhaps you can take a boat trip and collect some cones...
