Shortleaf Pine: Our Heritage - Our Resource - Our Legacy
Shortleaf pine forests and associated habitats once covered a vast area
of the continent – from eastern Oklahoma and Texas, to the Atlantic
Coast from New Jersey down to Florida – and helped fuel industrial
expansion into the region. Early settlers and Government
Land Office surveys describe many of these pine- dominated and mixed
pine-oak forests as open woodlands where enough sunlight reached the
ground to support a diverse assortment of native wildlife species.
These resilient and adaptive forests, spanning parts of twenty-two
states, represent an extraordinary diversity of cultural, ecological,
and economic values, yet are being displaced. With millions of people
depending upon the benefits this under-appreciated species provides,
including wildlife and recreation, water quality and high-value wood
products, the need to conserve and better manage the shortleaf pine
ecosystem is more compelling than ever.
Learn more about the Shortleaf Pine and order the poster.
