Longleaf pine forests once encompassed more than 90 million acres of the North American landscape and represented some of the world’s most unique biologically diverse ecosystems. In 2010, approximately three percent, or 3.4 million acres, of longleaf pine forest remained.
With the CCA designation, USDA will build on existing strong partnerships in the range to improve the profitability and sustainability of longleaf pine forest ecosystems. NRCS and partners recognize the need to support a range-wide approach that accelerates conservation technical assistance and program delivery to private landowners in the longleaf pine range.
This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.
