Title: Longleaf Pine the Mountains?

Author: Varner, Morgan;

Date: 1999

Source: Alabama's Treasured Forests, Fall 1999

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: While most people familiar with Alabama's forests associate longleaf pine with the gently rolling hills of lower Alabama, longleaf pine forests extend up into the hills, ridges and mountains of north Alabama. These forests, termed "montane" or "mountain longleaf," still thrive in several spots, but are becoming increasingly rare. These rare and breathtaking forests offer a glimpse of what was and could be again.
