Are you planting longleaf pine this season? Are you burning an existing stand of longleaf? Did your lands sustain hurricane damage and you need support for replanting?
The Forest Landowners Association has cost-share funds for private forest landowners available through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Longleaf Stewardship Fund. These funds are intended to enhance longleaf ecosystems for wildlife while promoting and supporting working forests.
Benefits of Growing Longleaf
New management techniques, improved seedlings, and other benefits of growing longleaf pine present a valuable opportunity to private forest landowners. Through these funds, FLA seeks to promote both the economic viability of working forests as well as the biological uniqueness of the longleaf pine region. Cost-share funds are available to FLA members for the purpose of establishing, enhancing, or maintaining longleaf pine on their lands.
Simple and Straight Forward Process
Unlike other cost-share opportunities, the process to receive these funds is simple and straightforward. There is no AGI limit, and there are no government forms to complete. Funds are awarded based on several factors, including location of activity as well as number of acres being impacted.
