Come celebrate the State tree of North Carolina, the longleaf pine
Join us on this wonderful day and receive longleaf and loblolly pine seedlings from Bartlett Tree Experts!
This beautiful tree used to dominate forests from Texas to Virginia and was a valuable source of lumber for colonists. Not only was the tree used for its timber, it was also a valuable source of pitch and tar for Navy ship building, giving rise to the nickname “The Tarheel State." Unfortunately, the range of the longleaf pine has been reduced by nearly 97 percent, and some of the iconic plant and animal species that evolved with the tree are on the verge of extinction. Join us as we get hands on, hear from experts and learn how to become involved with longleaf pine restoration efforts.
