Description: Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) forests once constituted a major ecosystem in the Southern United States stretching from southeastern Virginia south to central Florida and west into East Texas. These forests covered a wide range of site conditions, from wet pine flatwoods to dry mountain slopes. Intensive exploitation reduced the extent of old-growth longleaf forests to 20 million acres by 1935, 12 million by 1955, 3.8 million by 1985, and 3.2 million acres by 1993.
