Pinus montezumae, also known as the Montezuma Pine or Ocote, is a stunning conifer species native to Mexico and Central America. Growing up to 40 meters in height and 1 meter in diameter, this tree has a round crown with dark brown-grayish bark. It thrives in warm temperate to cool climates and receives snow in the winter at high altitudes. The Ocote wood from this tree is highly valued for its resin, which is so flammable that it can be used as a fire starter for campfires and barbecues. The wood is also hard, heavy, and used for construction. In addition to its practical uses, Pinus montezumae has medicinal applications, as its turpentine is antiseptic, diuretic, and can be used as a treatment for respiratory complaints, skin complaints, and burns. Planted commercially in several countries, this stunning tree undoubtedly deserves a place in any garden.
