New program could add 250,000 acres of pines in South

[ Georgia ] Agriculture officials announced a new initiative Wednesday to increase longleaf pine forests by 250,000 acres in nine Southern states, a move aimed at restoring one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems outside the tropics. Since it applies exclusively to longleaf and there are no specific signup periods, landowners won ‘ t have to compete with their counterparts in other regions and can sign up any time they have land available, he said. That should mean a more consistent supply of seedlings for longleaf reforestation, he said.
