Table Mountain Pine and Pitch Pine Restoration
|Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, National Forests in North Carolina are among the most beloved in the country. From gentle mountain slopes to the coastal forests along the shoreline, these forests encompass a wide variety of habitat that support an array of wildlife species, including black bears, bald eagles and the threatened Red-cockaded woodpecker. The National Forests in North Carolina are a treasure for the 8.6 million annual visitors who are drawn to the forest's beauty to camp, hike, mountain bike, or otherwise enjoy the forest's quiet solitude. These forests hit their peak in autumn, when leaves turn from green to an array of beautiful fall colors.
While the National Forests in North Carolina offer solace for visitors seeking to escape to its natural beauty, they are now threatened by another, more destructive visitor-the Southern Pine Beetle. Climate change has allowed the Southern Pine Beetle to take hold in these forests, causing declines of table mountain pine and pitch pine trees. In an effort to restore these forests and their ecological integrity, the U.S. Forest Service is planting table mountain pine and pitch pines in degraded areas, restoring this important ecosystem and ensuring that it remains vibrant for future generations.
