Abstract It is estimated that longleaf pine (LLP) covered 60-90 million acres in the United States prior to colonial times. Their native range stretched from Virginia down to Florida and over to eastern Texas. In Virginia, an estimated 900,000 to 1 million acres occurred in the Southeast coastal counties. Today, approximately 400-1000 naturally occurring trees still exist. In addition, a few hundred acres have been planted in the last several years. There is much debate over the true historical range of LLP in Virginia, but the following counties/cities are presumed to be native Longleaf Pine range: Accomack, Brunswick, Greensville, Sussex, Prince George, Southampton, Isle of Wight, Surry, Norfolk, Hampton, Poquoson, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, James City, Newport News, Williamsburg, York, Gloucester, Mathews and Northampton.
