Longleaf Pine Plantation, Baker County

It’s always encouraging to see Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris) in the landscape, and there is quite a lot of it in Baker County, like this stand on Williamsburg Road.

The savanna [grassy woodland] is the habitat most associated with Longleaf and is essential to the health of numerous keystone species, including the Northern Bobwhite (Colinus virginianus), Red-cockaded Woodpecker (Leuconotopicus borealis), Gopher Tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus), and Indigo Snake (Drymarchon couperi). Many of the plants and animals the environment supports are threatened or endangered.
