America’s Longleaf Restoration Initiative (ALRI) released its 2020 Range-wide Accomplishment Report celebrating a decade’s worth of accomplishments and significant progress towards restoring longleaf pine. Despite a turbulent 2020, ALRI’s dedicated partners proved resilient and recorded over 1.9 million acres of accomplishments ranging from new longleaf establishment, prescribed burning, land protection, and maintenance activities.

“ALRI’s unified partnership has catapulted our restoration efforts, causing a ripple effect of positive impacts,” says 2020 Longleaf Partnership Council Chair Tiffany Woods. Few initiatives impact the 100+ million residents in the Southeast to the degree of ALRI, translating to positive outcomes for local economies, national defense, rare species, recreation, forest resiliency, wildfire risk, clean air and water, carbon sequestration, and climate change mitigation.
