Pinus pinaster, also known as the Maritime Pine or Cluster Pine, is a fast-growing pine tree native to the western Mediterranean region. It is widely planted for timber in its native area, making it a vital tree in forestry in France, Spain, and Portugal. It is also a popular ornamental tree, often found in parks and gardens in warm temperate climates. This tree is highly tolerant of maritime exposure, making it an ideal choice for shelterbelts along exposed coasts and for stabilizing sandy soils. Its large wings containing small seeds make it a successful invasive species in areas like South Africa, where it has caused a decrease in biodiversity. Despite its invasiveness, Pinus pinaster remains a valuable resource for timber and as a source of turpentine and rosin. It is also commonly used in dietary supplements due to the presence of flavonoids, catechins, proanthocyanidins, and phenolic acids.
