Description: Across the historical range of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.), less than 10% of lands previously occupied by longleaf ecosystems are currently in public ownership (Johnson and Gjerstad 1999; Alavalapati et al., this volume). The remainder is owned by private entities ranging from the forest industry, to timberland investment organizations, to highly varied nonindustrial private landowners. Any significant recovery of longleaf is therefore dependent on the participation of the private sector. Certainly, for the forest industry, and many other investor-type groups, the need for competitive returns from forest management is extremely important. And although experience has indicated that economic return is often not the primary motivator for nonindustrial landowners, it usually plays some role in management decision-making.

Keywords: growth and yield, longleaf pine, Pinus palustris
