Longleaf Landowner Spotlight – North Carolina Sandhills
December 1, 2021
Here's to the land of the longleaf pine.
The once abundant longleaf pine forests of North Carolina are much depleted, due to the long-term effects of resin collection, overharvesting of trees, and lack of management with prescribed fire. Fortunately, there are landowners across the state who are bringing back this ecosystem. Much of the restoration work is happening in the Sandhills region of North Carolina.
Storytelling is the oldest form of teaching.
First-hand restoration examples can be an important learning tool for those who are working to restore longleaf pine on their lands.
Hear from Mrs. Ann Rogers and Hand Me Down Farms as these landowners share their stories of managing and restoring the land to longleaf pine in this new interactive story from The Longleaf Alliance and Enviva.
