LONGLEAF PINE RESTORATION GRANT AVAILABLE TO LANDOWNERS
Traci Wood, Alabama Dept. of Conservation & Natural Resources
(334) 353-0503
January 03, 2012

Landowners have until March 1 to submit applications for funding through the Landowner Incentive Program (LIP) -- a program the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) hopes will encourage continued longleaf pine restoration efforts in Alabama.

Qualified landowners can receive assistance with site preparation, seedlings, planting, native grass restoration and exotic control costs. The grant was awarded through a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

For landowners to be considered eligible to receive funding, the property must be within the historic range of longleaf pine in Alabama or contain suitable soils to support longleaf pine.

Program details include cost share at 50 percent with no minimum required acreage. Cutover sites and agricultural sites are eligible.

For application information, contract Traci Wood with the ADCNR at (334) 353-0503 or Traci.Wood@dcnr.alabama.gov.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama's natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
