Sustaining Southeastern Forests: The Economic and Water Use Impacts of Privately-Owned Pine Woodlands and Restored Longleaf Pine Forests
Longleaf pine forests, which once encompassed more than 90 million acres across the southeastern United States, represent some of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems. Development, timbering, and fire suppression over the past two centuries have severely reduced the range of these forests, and with them, a suite of now threatened and endangered species. On February 23 at 1:00 p.m. eastern, Chambers English of the University of Georgia will present on both the barriers and impacts of longleaf pine restoration efforts compared to other common land uses in the Coastal Plains.
This presentation will focus on identifying economic barriers and water use impacts of multiple management regimes in southeastern forests, including native longleaf pine restoration compared to loblolly pine restoration. These findings may be leveraged by forest landowners across the nation to inform on-the-ground management decisions and by government agencies and conservation partners to guide targeted support for voluntary programs and initiatives related to longleaf pine restoration across private lands.
No registration is required. Access the webinar shortly before 1:00 p.m. eastern via Microsoft Teams by clicking "Join February 23 Webinar," below. Please note, users on smartphones may need to download Microsoft Teams in advance.
