Spring Break 2023: Pinus elliottii

Pinus elliottii, the Slash pine;
Volusia county, Florida (11 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

My first stop for Spring Break 2023 was Heart Island Conservation Area in the interior of Volusia county — a bit west of Ormond Beach. I’ve adored Heart Island for years, and this certainly seemed like a good way to start my trip south. Why not celebrate the best of central Florida first?

ID Note: Though I believe these are dominantly Slash pines, I’m not too knowledgeable of our pine species in central Florida. Take this identification with a grain of salt!
