Forest Protection

  • Local and Regional Land Trusts: Essential Partners and the Tools They Provide (2012)
    A webinar produced by the USDA Forest Service and Open Space Conservation with a panel of land trust staff presenting valuable skills and tools used in working with local governments to balance growth and open space conservation (view session #5).
  • Preserving Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers in Southeast Alabama (2005 - 2011)
    The Alabama Forest Resources Center, easement holder for nearly 18,000 acres of Enon and Sehoy Plantations, recently completed the sixth year of work under a USFWS Private Stewardship Grant to preserve the last remaining red-cockaded woodpeckers in southeast Alabama.
  • Southern Forests for the Future (2010)
    This is a pioneering project launched by World Resources Institute (WRI), an environmental and development organization.  The project publicizes threats facing southern U.S. forests, with pilot tests of financial, market-based and other incentives for woodland owners to preserve them. With the help of organizations and communities throughout the region, WRI’s long-term goal is to catalyze the sustainable stewardship of a fifth of the South’s remaining 214 million acres of forest by 2020.

Special Reports

  • The Southeast regional program of the national Land Trust Alliance conducted a survey in spring 2014 of locally-based land conservation organizations across the twelve states of its service area, which includes: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Similar surveys had been done either by the Land Trust Alliance national office or by the Southeast regional program in 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010. In combination, these surveys have produced data on the land protection records and progress for the Southeast region and the program’s outreach to the region. See full report »
  • Produced by Defenders of Wildlife, in close cooperation with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, Understanding the Impacts of Climate Change on Fish and Wildlife in North Carolina (PDF) (2010) provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of climate change science, specific synthesis of impacts on wildlife and habitats in North Carolina and the Southeast, a review of synergistic threats, as well as options for response through conservation planning and adaptive management.
  • Adapting to Climate Change: What's a Coastal Land Trust to Do? In June 2011, Southeast land trusts came together during a workshop hosted by the NOAA Coastal Services Center and Land Trust Alliance to discuss climate adaptation challenges around land protection and communication and share resources and ideas to help with these challenges.
