Description:

the vanguard of a severe invasion playing out on the slopes below, where they are so thick you cannot see any fynbos! major long term loss of biodiversity will be the consequence, as this area is packed with endemics. this invasion, like many, has been building up for decades and is completely unmanaged. bring on the pine bark beetles I say!

Growing on a rock at a steep slope (Platteklip gorge), so no way to analyse leaf-bundlets. Found many obss of P. pinaster and the cone would support that guess. But: alien pines are many specs from US in EU, I don't know how that is in the Cape Provinces.
