The Longleaf Alliance Planting Funds

March 25, 2022

Because of the tremendous public benefits that flow from healthy private forests, many incentives (including “cost-share”) exist to encourage landowners to plant, grow and manage forests. This is especially true with longleaf pine, because of its superior environmental benefits.


The Longleaf Alliance works with multiple partners to provide longleaf pine seedling funds to landowners. In 2021, The Longleaf Alliance, planted 7.2 million longleaf pine seedlings on private and public lands in collaboration with restoration partners.

Submitting a request does not guarantee that funds will be available, but does allow us to more efficiently track those landowners or partners that are in need of assistance. Please read our FAQs with example application information BEFORE submitting your application.

This funding request is open until July 31st, but applicants are encourage to apply early as funding opportunities may arise before the July 31st deadline. Applications will be reviewed in August 2022 with notifications anticipating in the fall.


As always, we encourage folks to order longleaf seedlings early! Waiting until you hear back about a cost-share application may be too late to guarantee seedlings.
