"The combined efforts of the many partners involved in longleaf restoration across
the Southeast resulted in over 1.55 million acres of various on-the-ground longleaf
restoration accomplishments. These restoration activities included tree planting,
prescribed burning, mid-story treatments, invasive species control, native understory
plant establishment, over-story treatments, and land acquisition/easements.
Approximately 69% of the total accomplishments occurred within the SGAs.
Approximately 61% of the overall 2014 accomplishments occurred in Florida (38%),
Alabama (12%), and Georgia (11%), states which make up two-thirds of the current
range-wide longleaf-dominated forest acreage. Most of the work on public lands
(55%) occurred in Florida and Georgia and totaled over 658,000 acres. Restoration
activities on private lands in Alabama and Georgia accounted for roughly one-half
(175,000 acres) of the range-wide private lands total. Approximately 21% of the
overall accomplishments occurred in the western range (Mississippi, Louisiana, and
Texas), while 17% occurred in the eastern range (South Carolina, North Carolina, and
Virginia)." To read the full Report: 2014 Range-wide Accomplishment Report
