Pine trees are also tapped in several parts of the world, such as western France, the southeastern U.S., and the Himalayas, for the purpose of their resin, which when distilled provides turpentine and resin.

 Canary Islands Pine Forests
In the Canary islands the tree line of the pine forests varies between 1000 and 2000 meters, but on the ancient lava streams of the eastern slopes of mount Teide (Tenerife) we can observe individual pine-trees growing as high as 2400 meters.
The pine forests are characterised by the presence of two shrubby legumes: Adenocarpus viscosus, Chamaecytisus proliferus and Lotus hildebrandtii, a small herbaceous plant, still belonging to the family of legumes, which we can observe in large quantities, on the south-western slopes of mount Teide.
The pine forests in Tenerife represent a preferential habitat for Fringilla teydea subspecies teydea (the Teide finch) and for Dedrocopos major subspecies canariensis (Teide's red woodpecker major) while the Gran Canaria forests are the preferential habitat for F teydea subspecies polatzeki and Dedrocopos major subspecies thanneri.

 Research Abstract: 1989-02-00 Dry Deposition Onto Aerodynamic Surfaces and Vegetation
Three species of vegetation (Waxleaf Privet, Canary island Pine, and Japanese Privet) have also been used to assess dry deposition during the first set of field experiments.
In general, deposition on the Canary Island Pine shows the greatest values, exceeding those on the Teflon plates and nylasorb filter paper by factors of 2 -3.
Fluxes onto the Japanese Privet are only slightly lower than those onto Canary Island Pine, while fluxes onto the Waxleaf Privet are nearly the same as those on the Teflon plates and filter paper.
