Long Leaf Pine

Ponchatoula, LA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Longleaf Pine forests once were present along the southeastern Atlantic coast and Gulf Coast of North America but were the source of naval stores - resin, turpentine, and timber - needed by merchants and the navy for their ships. They have been replaced with faster-growing Loblolly Pine and Slash Pine. Due to this deforestation and over-harvesting, only 3% of the original Longleaf Pine forest remains, and little new is planted.

Thanks Gil! :) One of those trees is at least 100 yrs old. They can live up to 500 yrs. I read that : In the past, they reportedly grew to 47 m (154 ft) with a diameter of 1.2 m (47 in).
I'll go measure it tomorrow to see.

Thanks Jen, Jim & Sharon. More info:
My long leaf pines that I refused to cut down made it through the hurricane & the beetle invasion that took other pines in our area after being damaged by the winds. A 2009 study by the National Wildlife Federation says that Longleaf Pine forests, which the Red-cockaded Woodpecker is dependent on will be particularly well adapted to environmental changes caused by global warming. These hardy pines make it through prescribed burning.

Interesting push to make the foreground strong and the object subtle and soft. Like this way
