Have you ever wondered how many different species belong to the genus Pinus, that we commonly call pine? More than 100!

You can probably tell the difference between the maritime pine, which thrives on the Mediterranean coast; the Italian stone pine, whose specimens you may have encountered in great numbers aside the streets of Rome; or the dwarf mountain pine, with its tiny rounded pine cones, which you probably walked close to during your mountain trekking and that is used to produce delicious grappa.

In the Community Forests, instead, you can observe the black pine. Can you tell the difference between the black pine and the other pines?
