The Biennial Longleaf Conference, hosted by The Longleaf Alliance, is a regional conference focused on the restoration and conservation of the longleaf ecosystem that once dominated the landscape within the southeastern United States. The conference provides the opportunity for people from all over the Southeast to get together, share, learn, and celebrate longleaf. It also serves as a rallying spot for several other organizations and government agencies seeking to stage additional events in order to better collaborate on the conference topics.

The Conference Call for Proposals is now open! We are asking for contributions to support the conference theme “Rekindling Our Connections.” The four conference tracts will support the event’s exchange of expertise and ideas while providing the opportunity to meet face-to-face once again, build relationships, and further ignite our passion for longleaf pine conservation.


  • + Branching Out – Exchanging strategies and resources to reach new audiences.
  • + Strong Roots That Bind – Work addressing groundcover & natural communities
  • + Pyrodiversity Enkindles Biodiversity™ – Intersection of fire & ecosystem diversity – research, implementation, & social considerations
