The Natural Shift: Longleaf Conversion Over Time
Ready to move your forest back to its true nature? Converting to longleaf pine is a natural decision that takes planning and intention.
Many existing forest stands in eastern North Carolina are located in prime longleaf pine habitats. Natural fire exclusion, old field succession, and market forces have all contributed to the dominance of intensively managed, or naturally regenerated, stands of loblolly pine in the region.
This workshop will cover methods and best practices when converting to longleaf while maintaining a pine overstory. Content is designed for natural Resource professionals and extremely knowledgeable landowners.
Participants should be capable of climbing in and out of 15-passenger vans.
