Hal Scott Longleaf Pine Planting Phase 3

Year Planted: 2010
Trees Planted: 167,000
Location: Florida

The Hal Scott Regional Preserve and Park is increasing the density of longleaf pines in certain key areas. Due to logging practices in the area, pine density has become too low to adequately support the population of endangered Red-cockaded woodpeckers. Over the course of the project, a total of 166,000 trees will be hand-planted throughout 553 acres to make sure no damage is done to the trees currently there. Site preparation for the project will be done via controlled burning, as it is the least invasive way to prepare the site.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
