Shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata) forests and associated habitats contain extraordinary cultural, ecological, and economic value by providing wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, enhanced water quality, and high value wood products. Despite these values and services, shortleaf pine has significantly declined across much of its 22-state range.

This website was created to provide the essential tools and resources necessary for restoration of shortleaf pine.
