The Nature Conservancy and partners are dedicated to the goal of restoring longleaf to a total area of 8 million acres by 2024. The Conservancy is one of the largest private landowners of longleaf pine, with more than 156,000 acres under management through ownership or easement across the nine states. We are conducting restoration projects in all nine states of the historic range. At these sites, the Conservancy is planting trees, removing invasive species and using prescribed fire to help longleaf forests stay healthy and begin to expand. We also work with other private landowners, with the Department of Defense and with the forest industry to help develop and implement strategies for conserving and restoring longleaf.
Help us bring back longleaf forests across the South—and with them restore important plant and animal habitats, protect fresh water and sustain the economy.
