The Blacks Beach Foundation, with support from UCSD and Black Sage Environmental, planted 4 young Torrey Pine Trees this weekend, working towards our goal of improving and preserving the environment of Blacks Beach.
Did you know that Torrey Pines are critically endangered with only about 100 of them still living?
The Torrey pine, Pinus torreyana, is a rare pine species in the United States. It is an endangered species growing only in the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, coastal northern San Diego county, and on one of the Channel Islands. This species is endemic to the coastal sage and chaparral ecoregion in the U.S. state of California.
