Pinus caribaea is a pine tree that can grow to 30 metres. It is one of the most common trees planted for forestry in the Pacific Islands. Pinus caribaea naturalises easily and sometimes abundantly in open and disturbed areas. In New Caledonia, it is one of the few alien species able to colonise ultrabasic soils characterised by high levels of endemism.
