Torrey Pine and Climate Change


Pinus torreyana, the Torrey pine, grows in a limited region along the coast in North San Diego County near Del Mar; the oldest trees are somewhat over a century old. The history of its rate of growth is contained in its tree rings, which tell an interesting story about patterns of climate change; thatis, the history of precipitation in the region.
