July 2013 to Dec 2014 Blackwater River State Forest

July 2013 to Dec 2014 <p>Blackwater River State Forest
Blackwater River State Forest is in the Florida Panhandle region.

Due to wildfires and extensive hurricane damage, Blackwater River is home to struggling populations of red cockaded woodpeckers, gopher tortoises and Florida black bears.

Forest restoration is desperately needed so these and other species of animals can thrive once again.

If you received your tree between July 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014 your tree is a longleaf pine and your tree was planted in early 2015.

Your tree was planted along with many others in a stand of trees that will make a huge difference to the entire forest ecosystem.

Please check out the photos and maps at the links below.
