    Slash pine (Pinus elliottii) is one of the hard yellow pines  indigenous to southeastern United States. Other names occasionally used  for this species include southern pine, yellow slash pine, swamp pine,  pitch pine, and Cuban pine. It is one of the two southern pines used for  naval stores and one of the most frequently planted timber species in  North America. Two varieties are recognized: P. elliottii var.  elliottii, the slash pine most frequently encountered, and P.  elliottii var. densa, that grows naturally only in the  southern half of peninsula Florida and in the Keys.
