A cultural and natural history of the South's ancient primeval forest. A
film by Rex Jones.

Towering stands of old-growth longleaf pine (pinus palustris) once covered
over 90 million acres while stretching from southern Virginia to eastern
Texas. Today, the total acreage is about two million, with only about two
thousand of that considered old growth. As the South was settled and
Northern timber supplies were exhausted, this incredible natural resource
was very nearly extirpated from the South's landscape and collective
consciousness. LONGLEAF: THE HEART OF PINE is a cultural and natural
history of the South's ancient primeval forest and the story of how it
might still be saved.
