Hi Wayne,

Monterey Pines here in the UK are regarded as iconic species, though they do 
concern some with heavy cone failure.
Some of the mature specimens in Bognor Regis and Aldwick were planted 
approximately 90 years ago (ring counted) and each have unique characteristic.
As I understand they were planted in New Zealand as a cash crop.

Here’s a street view (Fish Lane, Aldwick) as an example of how fine they 
look, though only three needled (time for another thread?).

I'm not so concerned about foreign organisms that don't reproduce, mainly
those which swamp the indigenous species. Our *Pinus radiata*, highly
restricted here, apparently has been a real problem in other parts of the
world, as have our jackrabbits and cacti.

I spent over a year in Turkey; made friends with the locals, all Muslims.
Very hospitable people, all the men packing weapons--illegally, of course.
