Introduction is badly out of date[edit]

The introduction is badly out of date, as Pinus has not been divided into three subgenera for a long time. Nobody even uses the term Ducampopinus any more - cladistics and molecular studies since the early 2000s demonstrated this group is artificial and has since become redundant (for example P. krempfii was shown to be contained within Strobus around 15 years ago). Tellingly, no citations seem to have been added since 2010, when this article was tagged as in need of attention. I'm going to go ahead and make a properly referenced introduction to this, and remove mention of the outdated ideas here.

The selection of Pinus species listed here is excellent though!

Linking style[edit]

I wish it weren't such a chore to do so, but it would make more sense to link the "real" name of these species rather than the common names. The binomial is more likely to the actual article title (as I found at Pinus strobus / Eastern White Pine. Plus all these common names need to be decapped... so much work...
