Overview
Those who remember what the longleaf pine woodland looked like are passing with each tree that is cut. Perhaps it takes age, and an outsider who became a fire ecologist, to appreciate what once was. This pictorial gift (over 80 pics & images ) of the longleaf pine story will be appreciated if you liked: Ray's Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, Neel's The Art of Managing Longleaf, or Earley's Looking for Longleaf. If you love the South then this book's for you It speaks about one of North America's premier forests: the longleaf pine ecosystem. This coastal plain forest once dominated the landscape that greeted the settlers from southern Virginia to the Piney Woods of eastern Texas. Its sap was used to seal ships and make specialty chemicals; its timber was used to build schools, factories, churches, houses and the great American railroads Today it helps to deliver electric power to millions of homes. What happened to this woodland? Will we bring this treasured forest back?
