Torrey pine is the rarest pine in North America [9]. The natural
distribution of Torrey pine consists of two disjunct populations. The
mainland population, in and near the Torrey Pines State Reserve (TPSR),
is confined to the low coastal bluffs flanking the Soledad Valley in San
Diego County, California. It consists of approximately 7,000 trees
[7,22]. The other population occurs on Santa Rosa Island off the coast
of southern California, 175 miles (280 km) northwest of the mainland
population [7,13,22]. This population consists of approximately 2,000
trees [20].
