Pine is a small unincorporated community in western Ripley County, Missouri. It is located on a county road in the Mark Twain National Forest, about sixteen miles northwest of Doniphan.

A post office called Pine was established in 1883, and remained in operation until the 1970s.[1] The community was so named on account of pine trees near the original town site.[2]
