A Tree With Deep Southern Roots
The longleaf pine towers over some of the South's most beautiful landscapes
Longleaf, Far as the Eye Can See (University of North Carolina Press), a new book from conservationists Bill Finch, Beth Maynor Young, Rhett Johnson, and John C. Hall, pays tribute to a tree that's been a fixture in the Southern forest for centuries. These photographs are a sampling of more than 150 in the book, taken everywhere from the Florida wetlands to the hills of northern Alabama.
