According to published reports, Texas A&M Forest Service, in College Station, Texas, and the Texas Longleaf Pine Implementation Team recently accepted applications for available funding for private landowners who wish to restore and enhance Longleaf Pine ecosystems on their property.

Grants have been made available by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and International Paper through the Forestland Stewards Initiative.

Longleaf Pine ecosystems are a natural part of East Texas, and once spanned more than 92 million acres across the American South, according to the forest service. By the early 2000s, that number had fallen to 3.2 million acres. Thanks to Longleaf Pine restoration programs, that number has started to rise again — today, it’s up to 4.7 million acres but it is still just 5 percent of the original volume.
