Vegetative Propagation of Pinus maximartinezii

Pinus maximartinezii Rzed. is a rare pinyon pine with a natural range restricted to one site, Cerro Piñones in southern Zacatecas, Mexico. The entire distribution of the species is reported to be approximately 400 hectares and the population size about 2000 mature individuals (Donahue and Mar-Lopez, 1995). Most of the population occurs in a band from 2100 to 2300 m elevation. P. maximartinezii has been considered one of the most rare and endangered of all pine species (Farjon, 1993, Perry, 1991).
