Description: The longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) forest figured prominently in the cultural and economic development of the South. What was once one of the most extensive forest ecosystems in North America has now become critically endangered (6). At the time of European settlement, this ecosystem dominated as much as 92 million acres throughout the southeastern United States (2). Acreage declined dramatically, largely due to human use, to 20 million acres by 1935 (9), then to 5 million acres by 1975, and 3.8 million acres a decade later (5). A 1994 update places the figure at 3.2 million acres (7).
