DescriptionThe Longleaf Alliance, a partnership of people and organizations interested in longleaf pine, started tracking longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seedling production in 1996. Total Longleaf seedling production has increased annually from 1996 to 2000. Bareroot seedling production decreased from 1996 to 1997, and decreased again from 1997 to 1998. Many nursery managers decreased longleaf production because demand for loblolly and slash were high in this time period, and more seedlings can be grown per square foot of nursery bed with loblolly or slash than with longleaf pine. Overwhelming demand for longleaf due to CRP Program and surplus production of loblolly and slash led to increased bareroot longleaf production from 1998 to 1999 and 1999 to 2000.
