2020 Range-wide Accomplishment Report
The 2020 Range-wide Accomplishment Report highlights the achievements of America's Longleaf Restoration Initiative (ALRI) partners from across the historic longleaf range. Annual accomplishment reporting is a vital tool for assessing the scale of on-the-ground work and measuring progress towards meeting the goals and priorities identified by the Range-wide Conservation Plan (2009) and Longleaf Partnership Council. It is a reflection on the collective efforts made by public and private partners to restore this iconic forest and highlights the benefits of longleaf to our Southeastern communities.
Partners reported over 1.9 million acres of accomplishments, including land protection, new longleaf planting, silvicultural activities, prescribed burning, and other maintenance actions.
ALRI proved truly resilient, much like the beloved longleaf pine, in the face of adversity during the 2020 pandemic, finding new ways to work, gather, and communicate to see progress continue on bringing back the longleaf pine!
