International Paper and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Working With Texas Landowners to Restore and Manage Longleaf Pine Forests

International Paper (IP) and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) are working with landowners in Texas to restore and manage forests through IP’s Forestlands Stewardship partnership.

The Forestland Stewardship partnership was formed in 2013 to conserve and restore southern forestlands, which comprise some of the United States’ most iconic landscapes. The partnership supports projects to restore native forests, strengthen important fish and wildlife populations, and protect watersheds-while at the same time promoting and supporting working forests in 12 states across the South.

With support from the Forestlands Stewards partnership, the Texas Longleaf Team and their partners have worked with private landowners to establish more than 4,700 acres of longleaf. More than 2.8 million trees were planted and an additional 37,000 acres of existing longleaf were improved and maintained with prescribed fire and other management treatments.
