Pints for Pines – Bringing Back Longleaf in North Carolina

March 24, 2023

The Longleaf Alliance loved celebrating with new and old friends at the Pints for Pines Longleaf Planting day at Cotton Creek Preserve on March 13, 2023.

More than 30 volunteers planted 2,000 longleaf pine container seedlings to support longleaf pine restoration in the North Carolina Piedmont.

Special thank you to Three Rivers Land Trust for being gracious hosts.

What is Pints for Pines?

Appalachian Mountain Brewery (AMB) and The Longleaf Alliance partner on Pints for Pines, a unique program that unites beer and wilderness enthusiasts to restore the longleaf pine ecosystem.

AMB’s flagship Long Leaf IPA, which takes its name from North Carolina’s state toast, was a natural fit for the program. For every case of AMB Long Leaf IPA sold at retail – or the case equivalent of pints sold at bars and restaurants – The Longleaf Alliance will plant one longleaf pine.
