Pine forests and plantations are responsible for important provisioning services such as timber and firewood, but are rich in non-wood forest. Prints are made using rigid PVC foamboard, which is characterized by its light weight and insensitivity to temperature fluctuations. Your motif will be printed.

In the longleaf forest, the diversity is from the knees down. The blanket of groundcover plants is home to an abundance of wildlife species. In some areas you can find up to 50 different species of plants in one square meter. David Printiss. These once-vast longleaf forests provided timber to build colonial America, along with tar, pitch and turpentine to construct and maintain vessels throughout the era of wooden sailing ships. Demand for these products—combined with widespread clearcutting, development, and fire suppression—led to the near disappearance of longleaf from almost all its former range.
Longleaf pine forests benefit humans as well as wildlife. They support our freshwater systems , provide natural resilience to catastrophic storms, and help sustain the regional economy. Longleaf pine itself is not rare, but the healthy longleaf pine community is. Without fire, competing trees and shrubs clog up the open grasslands and block out sunlight, dismantling the conditions that allow a healthy longleaf system to be one of the most biodiverse habitats in the world.
To restore longleaf pine forests, fire itself is the greatest restoration tool we have. As urban development expands across the south, there is more pressure than ever to protect and restore longleaf. Here, the restoration process begins began with thinning the existing stand of loblolly pine and replanting those areas with longleaf seedlings.
TNC has planted over 60, seedlings at Red Creek. When fire is reintroduced, it can feel a bit like magic. Everything greened up after the burn, and wildlife is moving back in. Restored longleaf pine habitat has helped the survival of threatened and endangered species like red-cockaded woodpeckers , gopher tortoises , pine snakes, and dusky gopher frogs. In longleaf pine systems and beyond, The Nature Conservancy has been using fire as a restoration tool for decades and has expertly trained and certified burn crews throughout the country, restoring thousands of acres of fire-dependent forests each year.
Beyond its restoration power, fire represents one of our greatest opportunities to bring diversity to the conservation sphere. A controlled burn performed by an all-female crew at Disney Wilderness Preserve in is just one of many signs of a growing presence of women who are managing lands with fire and fighting wildfires. Opportunities for women in conservation like the all-female controlled burn signal a new attitude that women and people from many walks of life have an important role to play in restoring and maintaining fire-dependent lands.
The partnership started in the mids and created a national model around other military bases called the Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration REPI program. Now, TNC works on longleaf pine at military bases throughout the south. In , TNC received a grant through the Longleaf Stewardship Fund to accelerate longleaf pine conservation on more than 10, acres of public and private land in east-central Alabama and west-central Georgia, focusing on areas around Fort Benning and Tuskegee National Forest.
This impressive coalition is on track to meet its ambitious goal to restore 8 million acres of longleaf across the Southeast by Just as private development represents one of the greatest challenges facing longleaf forests, private conservation is perhaps the greatest opportunity.
The Nature Conservancy has doubled down on working with private landowners to restore their own forested land. It connects , acres of protected lands that span both sides of the Savannah River. Property managers have been changing over tree stands from planted loblolly to native longleaf pine, a premium timber market and the preferred tree for red-cockaded woodpeckers to nest.
Engaging landowners with smaller tracts is one of the best ways to fill in the patchwork of conserved longleaf forest. While easements can offer the right economic incentive to implement conservation practices, TNC has started offering local Learn-to-Burn workshops to connect landowners to the resources they need to conduct prescribed burns themselves.
TNC has hosted four workshops in central and north Louisiana to help private landowners gain the skills and resources to apply fire and restore ground cover on their properties. The Lighterwood Farm tract has been in my family since the Civil War. There is natural history here. And there is my family history. Jesse Wimberly. I created the trees for the scene using SpeedTree8. SpeedTree models created using Megascans base trunks and Megascans textures. When I first had the idea to make this scene, it was with the goal of thoroughly testing and using a new master shader I had set up after several projects of hacking together certain features I wanted in a shader.
These features included:. Support for on the fly colour, roughness, normal, displacement and subsurface properties editing. Support for masking pixel depth offset using vertex colour. Support for triplanar, world space, PBR landscape blending. Support for one parameter, triplanar, world space, PBR snow coverage across all the assets. Adding Z-Amount to a parameter collection means it can be adjusted on every asset from one place and keyframed in a sequence actor.
In addition the shader also has a specific variant for foliage and subsurface objects that incorporates the SimpleGrassWind node for some very small added motion, which can be seen with the lily pads and grass. The composition of the scene relied heavily on my memories of a particular area I had hiked in last summer. From my memory I quickly drew up a basic sketch of what I wanted. I took my concept and quickly translated it to a rough sculpt of the underlying terrain and then I textured it with the help of a fairly simple auto material that would texture rock faces based on terrain slope.
Lighting the scene was accomplished using only dynamic light in Unreal Engine. This introduces some difficulties such as attempting to capture accurate bounce light. I set up my directional light and adjusted the intensity of the directional light, as well as the temperature. Once that was setup to my satisfaction, I enabled my directional light to cast into the light propagation volume and I enabled screen space global illumination from my project's settings.
Using both these methods; as well as capturing the sky light, I was able to generate some adequate bounce lighting. Composing the shots was largely a matter of trial and error. I would navigate the level, find an angle I liked and then imagine how I wanted the cinematic rail to travel. Once I had the shot lined up, I would usually add some extra care to the regions that were being captured by placing individual assets in some key places I felt lacked detail.
I also added some very rudimentary particle spawners for floating leaves.
