Description: Upland longleaf pine forests, woodlands, and savannas once occupied most of the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains from southeastern Virginia south through the northern two-thirds of Florida and west to east Texas, with extensions into the Piedmont and mountains of Alabama and northwest Georgia. South Florida slash pine is native to the southern half of peninsular Florida. The probable structure of and variability in old-growth forests, woodlands, and savannas of these two overlapping and fire-dependent ecosystems are described based on all available information. A number of old-growth attributes are listed for both species, including estimates of the variability that can be expected in these attributes.
