    Description

    The greater longleaf pine ecosystem once occupied over 90 million acres from southeastern Virginia, south to central Florida, and west to eastern Texas. Today less than 3 million acres remain, with much of the remaining understory communities in an unhealthy state. A number of public and private conservation organizations are conducting collaborative longleaf pine ecosystem restoration activities throughout the South. The USDA Forest Service has three roles or program areas which are contributing to a regional restoration/conservation strategy for the longleaf pine ecosystem, including: (1) expansion of the longleaf pine forest type and fire-dependent understory communities on the national forests of the South; (2) providing voluntary, non-regulatory incentives through State and Private Forestry programs; and (3) expansion of collaborative research programs.
