Authors: America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative

Public land partners, including Federal and State Agencies, private landowners, non-governmental organizations, forest industry, and even individual longleaf enthusiasts are collaborating and endeavoring to reach our 15-year goal of 8 million acres of longleaf pine habitat on the landscape by 2025. While there is still much to do, this report continues to highlight substantial gains towards our goal every year.
