  • George makes a good point and same could be made for several other distinct longleaf communities across the southeast.  However, our attempt here is to broadly define the primary community types to facilitate our thinking and planning efforts.  As we get more into the details, we will need to think harder about all these other communities.  For now, keep submitting these types of thoughts for they only help us think through the process in a deliberate manner.

  • Seems that the historic Southern Pine map also could easily break out the NW Fla Sandhills as has been done for S.C and N.C.  They are as distinct as the Lake Wales Ridge and contain significant diversity from LLP sandhills, springs, seeps, steephead ravines, PP bogs and much more.
