Division of Forrestry announces longleaf pine ecosystem restoration

-A A +A

Assistance available to private landowners

 The Division of Forestry at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services announced recently the Longleaf Pine Ecosystem Restoration Landowner Incentive Program will be accepting applications from non-industrial private forest landowners Monday, April 11 through Friday, May 6.
“Longleaf pine forests once covered a vast range from Texas to Virginia but have been reduced to less than four percent of historical area due to conversion to other land uses,” said Jim Karels, Director of the Division of Forestry. “Longleaf pine forests are highly valued for their resistance to damage by insects, disease, wildfire and storms and for their yield of high quality wood products, biological diversity and scenic beauty.”
The program, supported through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, offers incentive payments for completion of timber stand improvement, invasive species control, prescribed burning, planting longleaf pine, native plant understory establishment and mechanical underbrush treatments.
