DescriptionLongleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) was once one of the most ecologically important tree species in the southern United States. Longleaf pine and the accompanying longleaf forest ecosystems covered vast swaths of the South. Longleaf forests covered an estimated 92 million acres at their peak distribution and represented one of the most extensive forest ecosystems in America. Only a fraction of longleaf pine ecosystems remain today.
