Taiwan White Pine (Chinese: 台湾五针松; pinyin: taiwan wuzhensong; literally: "Taiwan five-needle pine"), Pinus morrisonicola, is a species of conifer in the Pinaceae family. It is a large tree, up to 15–25 m (49–82 ft) high and 1.2 m (4 ft) in diameter. The trunk is often crooked. Needles are in bundles of five. Mature cones are large, to 10 cm (4 in) long and 4–5 cm (1.6–2.0 in) in diameter.
Pinus morrisonicola is endemic to Taiwan. It grows at altitudes of 300–2,300 m (980–7,550 ft) throughout the island. At present, it is scarce at lower elevations and mostly present at higher elevations and less accessible places.
