Staff

The Longleaf Alliance staff work across the range of the longleaf pine to advance longleaf ecosystem restoration and conservation. Our main office is located in Andalusia, Alabama at the Solon Dixon Forestry Education Center and the Gulf Coastal Plain Ecosystem Partnership Team is based in Milton, Florida, but we also have folks working out of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
