    Description

    Historical land-use and management practices in the southeastern United States have resulted in the widespread conversion of many upland sites from dominance of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) to loblolly pine (P. taeda L.) in the time following European settlement. Given the ecological, economic, and cultural significance of the longleaf pine ecosystem, there is current interest in restoring longleaf pine and its associated plant communities on sites across the historical longleaf pine range.
