Longleaf Pine Forest

Longleaf pine forests once dominated the United States southern landscape from southeast Virginia to eastern Texas. But after decades of logging and fire suppression, restoring these towering conifers — and the rare species they sustain—could prove to be a tall order. The Nature Conservancy is working across the Southeast to conserve remaining longleaf-pine forests and restore degraded ones.
